Abstract : The U.S. Army Command and General Staff College (CGSC) at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas recently implemented an Accountable Instructional System based on the Florida State ISD model. This system was used to develop the curriculum for the new Combined Arms and Services Staff School (CAS3), a part of CGSC. Implementation of Phases II (Design), and III (Develop) of this model are discussed. Specific topics include development and approval of learning objectives, the General Officer subcourse review, and the development of evaluation instruments for the non-resident phase of the CAS3 curriculum. Finally, the advantages of using the system approach and lessons learned are addressed. (Author)
