Abstract : The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI), Fort Leavenworth Research Unit, regularly conducts research and evaluation in support of the Command and General Staff College. ARI provided the Combined Arms Services Staff School (CAS3) with program development by providing curriculum evaluation for the Scoping Program of Instruction (POI). The Scoping POI deals specifically with students' ability to identify major factors of a problem, make reasonable rapid rough estimates of the effects of the factors, purposely neglect small or insignificant factors, and develop a quick overall gross level picture of the problem. Examination of this curriculum for CAS3 and enlisted populations show enhanced scoping performance following instruction.
