Abstract : This paper presents the major findings of the TAEG differential effectiveness and efficiency study. Multiple regression analyses indicated significant differences in fleet supervisor ratings for graduates of individualized versus conventional instruction. These differences were related to different kinds of training tasks, but not to ability levels of graduates. Significant interactions between method of instruction and type of task, and method of instruction and ability level were found with respect to school achievement (for both course completion times and final course grades). The findings are discussed in terms of their utility for instructional design.
