Abstract : The job-oriented basic skills (JOBS) program was conceived in 1977 to provide training courses for lower-aptitude Navy personnel that would enable them to complete Class A technical schools successfully. The purpose of the current effort is to develop a JOBS curriculum for the acoustic sensor operations area. Analyses conducted to ascertain job requirements and basic and prerequisite A school requirements showed that A school students need training in mathematics, reading, study skills, memorization, science, mechanical relationships, and problem solving. Instructional objectives and specifications based on these requirements were developed to provide a guideline for future curriculum development. (Author)
