Using an assessment center to predict field leadership performance of Army officers and NCOs by Frederick N Dyer( )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During 1973 and 1974, the U.S. Army Infantry School (USAIS) Assessment Center (ACTR) at Fort Benning, GA., tested 408 officers and NCOs who were students in USAIS leadership courses. Field leadership performance ratings for these assessees were then obtained at 6- and 18-month intervals following graduation and assignment to new units. Complete rating data was obtained at 6 months for 159 of the original assessees and at 6 and 18 months for 108 of these assessees. Correlations between these ratings at 6 and 18 months averaged .66 for the different assessee groups, indicating a substantial degree of reliability for the rating instrument. Field leadership performance at 6 months was predicted by items in entry interview, a paper and pencil test, and a Person Description Blank. Taken together, however, the results indicate only marginal utility for the USAIS ACTR for prediction of the field leadership performance of junior officers and NCOs. Typically, the more assessor time required for an assessee measure, the less chance that the score would predict field leadership."--Abstract

A method for obtaining post formal training feedback : development and validation by Frederick N Dyer( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An evaluation of alternative methods--including three types of questionnaires and face-to-face interviews--of obtaining post training feedback from naval personnel is described. Using a sample of recent radio technician trainees, various approaches to data collection were employed. It was found that questionnaires provide the most cost-effective means of obtaining the needed information. Recommendations for further development and implementation of the questionnaire procedures are presented. The appendixes include the data collection instruments used, interview instructions, and summary data sheets. (DGC)

The Stroop Phenomenon and Its Use in the Study of Perceptual, Cognitive and Response Processes by Frederick N Dyer( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The review summarizes empirical findings and theoretical views related to the Stroop color-word phenomenon, in which naming of a color is disrupted and delayed by the presence of an "irrelevant" word denoting a color different from the color patch. It was deemed important to increase awareness of this phenomenon, since it involves basic processes of perception, identification, reading, and naming, which account for much of human behavior. Experimental findings were emphasized in a review of research, most of which was produced since the 1966 review of Jensen and Rohwer. One purpose of the review was to illustrate use of the Stroop paradigm as a tool for the study of word meaning, bilingual language organization, and perception and processing differences between the two hemispheres. The incompleteness, and in some cases the inappropriateness, of existing explanations of the Stroop phenomenon also were discussed. (Author/DD)
Smoking and Soldier Performance: A Literature Review( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research was reviewed on smoking as it relates to soldier performance for the US Army Medical Research and Development Command. The research reviewed was related to position disclosure in combat; the effects of smoking on physical work capacity and endurance; the effects of smoking on perceptual processes; the effects of smoking on arousal and ability to deal with stress, pain, and fear; smoking-induced hormonal changes; the effects of tobacco deprivation; smoking-disease relationships and their effects on productivity and absenteeism; smoking and abuse of other substances, delinquency, and accidents; and associations between smoking and other factors of potential relevance to soldier performance. Among the main findings, the review disclosed detrimental effects of smoking on physical performance of soldiers, particularly soldiers with several years of tobacco exposure. The review also identified nicotine-related improved performance on vigilance and rapid information processing tasks, including tasks that may be relevant to some soldier tasks. It alos showed a constellation of negative behaviors that are correlated with smoking such as drug abuse, delinquency, and driving accidents. Research in many areas critical to soldier performance, such as the effects of smoking on dark adaptation and the effects of smoking on testosterone production, showed contradictory results that need additional research for resolution. Needs for additional research on smoking and soldier performance were included as a final chapter of this report. Keywords: Tobacco smoking

Research was reviewed on the effects of hypoxia, hyperoxia, hypocapnia, and hypercapnia on a large number of visual and ocular processes. These included absolute visual sensitivity, dark adaptation, visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, depth perception, stereopsis, fields of peripheral and central vision, critical flicker/fusion frequency, color vision, afterimages, other entoptic phenomena, persistence of vision following ischemia, the standing potential, the electroretinogram, ganglion cell and optic-tract responses, visual evoked responses, ocular vessels, blood flow, intraocular pressure, intraocular oxygen, the pupil, accommodation, myopia, the crystalline lens, convergence, heterophoria, reading, other eye movements, and the cornea. Research was also reviewed on the potential toxic effects of hyperbaric oxygenation on vision
Interference and Facilitation for Color-Naming with Separate Bilateral Presentations of the Word and Color by Frederick N Dyer( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two experiments demonstrated the utility of a new procedure for generation of interference to color-naming. In this procedure, separate word and color stimuli are presented to the right and left of fixation. Whereas incongruent names delayed color-naming, congruent combinations of words and colors produced a facilitation of color-naming relative to a control condition in which Xs were presented opposite the color. A tendency for the color red to show interference only with words presented to the right visual field and hence to the dominant hemisphere suggests potential of this procedure for study of functional differences between the hemispheres.

Failure of Subliminal Word Presentations to Generate Interference to Color-Naming by Laurence J Severance( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In a previous study, it was shown that reliable Stroop-like delays of color-naming could be generated by presenting incongruent color names in black ink just before the nonword color patches. When color names were congruent to the color patches, color-naming was faster than for a control condition. The present investigation tested for the effects of subliminally presented stimuli by attempting to replicate the earlier findings but with the interfering or facilitating words presented at subthreshold exposure durations. The negative results found with these subliminal word stimuli raise serious questions about the ability of meaningful stimuli to produce subliminal effects. The findings are discussed in relation to previous subliminal research. (Author)
Follow-Up of the Officer Evaluation Center( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Army conducted an Officer Evaluation Study at Fort McClellan, Alabama, in early 1960's where about 900 first and second lieutenants underwent three days of evaluation of their technical, administrative combat and leadership skills. Over 2000 measures were taken from performance on 15 exercises. These observations yielded 341 variables which were reduced by factor analysis to 8 factors. In 1981, almost 20 years later, a follow up was conducted. Results showed that OEC summary variables did yield significant discriminant functions and small improvements in prediction of officers military career success over chance for groups of career vs. single-term (2 year) officers

Review of Eight Army Systems: Characteristics and Implications for Embedded Training( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This research note reviews eight Army systems and attempts to relate their system characteristics to the opportunities and requirements for development of embedded training (ET) in current and future Army systems. This is an early step in a major Army Research Institute program to develop formal and systematic procedures (to be included in the LCSMM acquisition process) to identify ET needs, to determine how and when ET should be included, and to define the procedures which will assist systems and training developers in the implementation of ET in their systems. Characteristics of the following eight Army systems were reviewed: four fielded systems (Apache AH64A, Bradley M2, Patriot ADA System, and TACFIRE an FA tactical fire direction system, and four systems in development (AFTADS the successor system to TACFIRE, ASAS I/EW ADP System, Aquila RPV, and the HIP Howitzer Improvement Program. Characteristics of the systems which were reviewed included: system-mission-equipment; personnel and operator-maintainer tasks; computational capability; simulation capability; training feedback and assessment of performance; availability of system and personnel for training; training problems; and training costs. Keywords: Embedded training; Training systems; Systems development; Army systems; Systems characteristics; Training effectiveness; Cost effectiveness
Videodisc Interpersonal Skills Training and Assessment (VISTA): Overview and Findings. Volume 1( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Videodisc Interpersonal Skills Training and Assessment (VISTA) project was initiated as a means to use computer-assisted training/videodisc technology to reduce the high training costs associated with junior officer leadership skills training. The research effort included topic analysis, hardware selection, software development, scenario writing, studio production, editing, and videodisc mastering. Final evaluation of the videodiscs produced included the administration of two tests, a test designed to measure the acquisition of leadership skills and a subjective preference test designed to measure user acceptance. Nine highly interactive videodisc training scenarios covering 20 leadership problems were produced. Overall evaluation results indicated a VISTA superiority followed by role playing and programmed text, with the majority of students indicating that a combination of videodisc and role playing would be optimal for leadership training. Results also indicate that although VISTA products were designed for the Infantry Officer's Basic Course, the problems addressed are probably common to other Army branches and should therefore be investigated for possible application in other training centers.

Stroop Interference with Long Preexposures of the Word: Comparison of Pure and Mixed Preexposure Sequences( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Stroop interference, the increase in time to name colors when the patches are incongruent color names, was studied as a function of the duration of a preexposure of the work in black prior to coloration. Individual word and control stimuli were presented in a tachistoscope and naming latencies were recorded with a voice key. Interference decreased to very low levels at 2 sec of preexposure, supporting the findings of a previous study using very short preexposures. Interference then increased to intermediate levels for longer preexposures. Facilitation of color-naming by congruent color names generally paralleled interference effects. Sequences of stimuli in which the preexposure interval varied randomly from trial-to-trial showed longer color-naming times for short preexposures than did sequences where all stimuli in the sequence used the same preexposure. The utility of this procedure for study of the central activity produced by viewing a written word was discussed. (Author)
Latencies for Movement Naming with Congruent and Incongruent Word Stimuli by Frederick N Dyer( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Naming of movement directions was found to be almost immune to interference from incongruent names integrated with the movement stimuli. This is in sharp contrast to the large delay of color naming when colors and incongruent color names are combined in the Stroop test. A hypothesis that faster processing of movement directions than of colors is the basis of the difference in interference was tested by beginning the processing of the words at various intervals prior to their movement. No appreciable increase in interference resulted from these stationary preexposures of the words. The absence of naming interference for movement direction and other dimensions suggests a basic difference between the cortical processing of color and other dimensions. (Author)
