Abstract
In any large-scale training exercise, it is difficult to provide all trainees with training objectives commensurate with their skills levels, experience or expertise. There are three main components needed for the solicited toolkit. The toolkit must provide suitable algorithms for assessment and classification of task-specific skill levels of individuals, units and teams. Based on such skill-level identification, the toolkit must help instructors assign challenging training objectives to each participant, unit and team. Once the objectives have been assigned and the exercise carried out, the toolkit should enable instructors and evaluators to assess participant performance relative to skill levels identified initially. We propose one such toolkit which is grounded in accepted cognitive principles of large-scale team training.
