Abstract : This report contains findings from three studies oriented toward program evaluation of DEOMI training effectiveness. Study One was a resurvey of commander/supervisor satisfaction of graduate performance and demonstrated consistently high levels of satisfaction across a one-year interval. Study Two ascertained commander/supervisor initial satisfaction with DEOMI graduates and found levels to be high across five content domains. For both studies, heuristic findings emerged through use of a method designed to elicit critical commentary regarding DEOMI. Study Three evaluated local effects of DEOMI training through pretest and posttest measures of achievement and attitudinal change. It was found that measures of achievement were significantly higher on completion of training. However, authoritarian attitudes were not significantly different upon conclusion of training. Findings are discussed and future research areas identified.
