Abstract : The Commander's Manuals (CM) are new products designed to assist in preparing unit training programs. Feedback from the Field Artillery about the manual has been minimal. The purpose of the report is to determine if the CM are useful in planning unit training, if the tasks in the CM are clearly stated, critical and assigned to the proper skill level, and if the introduction and references are adequate. The evaluation will consist of evaluating CM published in 1977 for all Cannon and Target Acquisition MOS in Career Management Field (CMF) 13. Based on the analysis of data received from the field, it is readily apparent that the CM are fulfilling their intended purposes. The CM is useful in planning unit training; the introductions to the CM adequately explain the use of the CM; the tasks in the CM are clearly stated, critical, and assigned to the proper skill level; and the references for the CM tasks are complete and correct.
