Abstract : Shrinking training budgets pose a serious problem to those confronted with the present and future challenge of providing competent Air Force technicians for increasingly technical positions in a modern Air Force. One promising solution to this problem has been to harness the capabilities of the computer as an instructional training device. To be cost-effective, computer-based instruction must maximize individual student attainment of training objectives, while simultaneously minimizing training time and costs. Adaptive Instructional Models (AIM) constitute the means by which effective training can be accomplished with a minimum expenditure of student time and instructional resources. The report describes the purpose and function of AIM. Additionally, seven adaptive instructional models, to include supporting literature, have been analyzed and recommendations as to model application in Air Force technical training courses have been made.
