Abstract : Because of the lack of job-oriented training which makes up the Warrant Officer Senior Course curriculum, tasks selected for instruction in this course are diverse and unspecialized. Achievement of goals established for the students cannot be accurately measured by this evaluation. Observations made during this evaluation indicate that training materials and instruction for the course are adequate for attainment of objectives. Staff and personnel conducting the course appear conscientious and committed in their efforts toward providing quality instruction. No major deficiencies were noted during the conduct of this evaluation; however, several problem areas do exist. Principal areas recommended for corrective action which are detailed in the FINDINGS portion of this report include: (1) Vague or incomplete training objectives which do not specify precisely how the student will demonstrate that he has attained the training goal; (2) Training objectives inconsistently stated in the POI, lesson plans, and test outlines which makes it difficult to determine that the objective has been met; (3) Deficiencies in test item construction and objectives which are not adequately tested as specified in the lesson plan and test outline; and (4) Statistical analysis of examination results as presently conducted is insufficient for providing valid evaluation of training effectiveness.
