Educational Technology Volume 1970, Number 1, ISSN 0013-1962
Curriculum development procedures in use as of 1966 for first enlistment technical training in the Army, Navy, and Air Force are analyzed. A model process for training curriculum development was defined from training research findings and practices: Analyze the system, develop task inventories, develop a job model, analyze its tasks, derive training objectives, develop the training program, and monitor the trained product and modify the curriculum. A comparison between this model and the training development procedures in use in the services indicated a need for better procedures for determining the adequacy of training content and the means for improvement; detailed guidance for developing or conducting the first four steps of the model process, criteria for allocating training content to formal instruction or on-the-job learning, performance specifications for graduates, and feedback from training programs; and more opportunities for career fields in training.
