Abstract : This evaluation was designed as a spot check to determine from a selected sample of the training conducted if training materials and instruction are effective in accomplishing the objectives selected for the AWOAC students. The evaluation produced the following major findings: a. Systems engineering of the AWOAC was completed in 1972. There is no complete documentation of POI changes since that time. b. Phase I of the Instructional Development Process was completed in April 1980. Phase II has been suspended pending a study of warrant officers by the Review of Education and Training for Officers (RETO) which will start in FY 82 and a revision of TRADOC Reg 351-3. c. Instruction and supporting training materials are adequate for attainment of objectives established for the AWOAC students. d. There are some discrepancies between objectives given in EA 1 and EA 2 test outlines and objectives given in lesson plans. In some cases, objectives are not adequately tested. e. There is no record of item analyses for the examinations as specified in USAAVNC Reg 350-14. f. High test scores for exams analyzed during this evaluation indicate that the tests are not challenging students.
