"This Staff Group Trainer (SGT) project was a research and development effort sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences in coordination with the Force XXI Training Program. As a follow-on effort to the previous SGT project, the goal was to refine a brigade-level staff training program to more effectively and efficiently coordinate the activities within and between the individual staff sections in the brigade command post. The program was designed to deliver training to newly formed, inexperienced staffs conducting the staff functions that support the military decision-making process within the execution phase of the brigade area defense mission. Program design and development were based upon lessons learned from the previous SGT effort, structured design methodology, instructional systems design techniques, adult learning principles, as well as team and mental model research. The refined training program further demonstrated the capability of structured, computer-driven, collective staff training. It advanced the techniques for development of structured staff training and integration of technology into the training process. The program incorporated innovative features including automated performance measures and structured feedback. This report provides details on the SGT background, design concept, technology development process, training support package development process, formative evaluation techniques, lessons learned, and conclusions."--Stinet.

"This report describes the work done on the "Structured Training for Units in the Close Combat Tactical Trainer-2" (STRUCCTT-2) Project, a follow-on to the STRUCCTT Project. The purposes of this project were to (a) develop additional exercises for inclusion in the initial training support packages (TSPs) and (b) develop an orientation course TSP and exercises which are necessary to support the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) complete system fielding. This report first summarizes the background (the use of structured simulation-based training in CCTT) and identifies the technical objectives for the project. The development section discusses the processes used to create the TSBs. The formative evaluation section details the project evaluation strategy and method and includes a description of exercise and TSP testing and modification. Following this segment, the lessons learned present issues regarding this project's processes and product development which provide insight and direction for additional developemtn work. The final section of the report contains a discussion of recommendations for future TSP development."--Stinet.

This text puts forward the argument that higher education must develop better and more consistent practices with regards to the evaluation of training and development. Most evaluations are valueless unless they start by clarifying the puropse they are intended to serve, and this usually means clarifying whose puropses are being served. This text provides a guide to best practices and uses examples and case studies from both the UK and abroad to show the benefits that can be gained from using evaluation effectively.
