Abstract : This is the second in a series of reports that evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of individualized instruction compared to conventional instruction. The present report provides information concerning relationships among student ability, school performance, and fleet supervisor ratings for 5,811 graduates of 19 Navy A schools and 3 pre- A school basic courses. The graduates received training under one of three different methods of instruction: self-paced, computer-managed, or group-paced. Significant relationships were found between student ability and school performance measures. Neither of these measures was significantly related to fleet supervisor ratings of training adequacy. Recommendations are presented for resolution of problems associated with the measurement of training effectiveness. (Author)
