The US Navy is undertaking a Total Force Transformation to develop a more agile, deployable, and capable force to meet the challenges of 21st century conflicts. The adaptive expertise required by the Total Force demands innovative and evidence-based approaches to instruction, training, and assessment that enable the development of both routine and adaptive skills. Given the costs of developing training systems, executing training programs, and the likely need for frequent practice and adapting to new roles, current instructional approaches need to be supplemented by two capabilities missing in today’s training: identification of those “ready” for some particular course of training and remediation support for those “unready” for training. In Phase II, we propose to implement and evaluate software that identifies those not ready for some particular unit within a defined course of training and enables remediation for unready students. We focus in particular on the challenge of instructing and preparing future Tactical Action Officers for this highly demanding and critical Navy role.
