Who determines what standard will be used for a curriculum revision?
The CCA for the course will determine which standard will be used.

The Training Project Plan (TPP) identifies the resources required and justifies the need for revision/development.

The TPP is submitted to higher authority for approval prior to beginning any revision/development project.
Discuss the purpose of the PLAN PHASE of the ISD Model.
1. For Task Based Curriculum Development:
-The output product of this phase is the Training Project Plan (TPP). When approved, the TPP becomes the authorization to undertake a course revision or a new course development project and initiate resource requisitions.

2. For PPP Based Curriculum Development:
-The output product of this phase is the Training Project Plan (TPP).

When approved, the TPP becomes the authorization to undertake a course revision or a new course development project and initiate resource requisitions.
What is the purpose of a Training Project Plan (TPP)?
1. For Task Based Curriculum Development:
-The output product of this phase is the Training Project Plan (TPP). When approved, the TPP becomes the suthorization to undertake a course revision or a new course development project and initiate resource requisitions.

2. For PPP Based Curriculum Development:
-The output product of this phase is the Training Project Plan (TPP). When approved, the TPP becomes the authorization to undertake a course revision or a new course development project and initiate resource requisitions.
What is the purpose of a Training Project Plan (TPP)?

Discuss the purpose of the ANALYSIS PHASE of the ISD Model.
The purpose of the Analyze Phase is to determine what will be taught in the new or revised course.

The Analysis Phase produces the job tasks, task sequence, level of performance, and the skills and knowledge, which must be taught.
Discuss the items developed in Analysis Phase.
1. For Task Based Curriculum Development:
-The product of the analysis phase is the Course Training Task List (CTTL) which provides a list of the duties, tasks, and/or skills that are selected for training.

2. For PPP Based Curriculum Development:
-The product of the analysis phase is the Personnel Performance Profile (PPP) Table which is a minimum listing of knowledge and skills required to operate and maintain a system, subsystem or equipment, or to perform a task or function. From the PPP Table, other outputs produced are the Training Path System (TPS), Training Objective Statements (TOS), Training Level Assignments (TLA), Table Assignment Matrix (TAM), Training Path Chart (TPC).

6. Meet ALL the guidelines listed in Table 2-1 (see NAVEDTRA 130A, Vol I, Pages 3-2-9 to 11)
Define a Personnel Performance Profile (PPP) Table.
A PPP is a minimum listing of knowledge and skills required to operate and maintain a system, subsystem, or equipment, or to perform a task or function.
State the most critical element of curriculum development per NAVEDTRA 131 (series), and explain its importance.
PPPs are the single-most important element of curriculum development. Quality curricula result from quality PPPs. Poor PPPs lead to a poor curriculum.

Curriculum developments requires that all PPPs be developed first because PPP line items are used throughout a curriculum.
State and discuss the Training Path System (TPS) outputs.
TPS Elements (Outputs) are:

-Training Objective Statements (TOS) describe skills and knowledge to be learned by the individual.

-Training Level Assignments (TLA) list specific PPP line items to be taught, the training environment, where each will be taught, and the level of training to be provided to each PPP line item.

-Table Assignment Matrix (TAM) summarizes the training requirements for PPP Tables listed on the TPC (see below) by showing all TOS associated with each PPP.

--Formal school training to provide people with the minimum required operational and maintenance qualifications on assigned equipment, subsystems, and the system.

3. Conversion training
--Training given to previously trained and experienced personnel to enable them to operate and maintain a new/modified system/subsystem/equipment. The training will be sufficient to allow the person to assume new duties at a level which normally involves replacement training.

4. Advanced training
--Training which follows replacement/conversion training. Advanced training normally completes the TOS coverage of particular Hardware/Non-Hardware knowledge and skills requiring advanced analysis or undocumented fault isolation.

5. Onboard training
--Training provided aboard ship, and which may include individual operator/maintenance technical training, individual watchstation qualifications, watch team training, and training in general military subjects.

This is also the phase where testing strategies are determined along with the tests placement within the course.
Discuss the items developed in Design Phase.
1. For Task Based Curriculum Development:

The output of the Design Phase is the Training Course Control Document (TCCD) which serves as the primary development and management document for a course.

The TCCD consists of the following items:
--Front Matter

--Curriculum Outline of Instruction (learning objectives arranged in the sequence of instruction)

--Annexes (Resources Requirements List (RRL) and Course Master Schedule (CMS)

2. For PPP Based Curriculum Development:

The output of the Design Phase is the Training Course Control Document (TCCD).

The approved TCCD serves as the authority for further development and consolidates the information needed by the curriculum developers to create the curriculum and support materials for a course.

--Curriculum Outline of Instruction (includes: CLOs, Part Title(s), Section Title(s), Topic Titles, TLOs

--Annexes-Resource Requirements List, Course Master Schedule, Fault Applicability List, Profile Item-to-Topic Objective Assignment Chart
State the two categories of learning objectives.
1. Terminal Objective

--Is developed from one or more duties listed on the CTTL

--Is a learning objective that the trainee will accomplish by the end of the course

--Indicates the ability to perform those tasks selected for training

2. Enabling Objective

--Is developed from one or more tasks listed on the CTTL

--Is a learning objective that the trainee may accomplish at any point in the course after receiving appropriate training

--Supports directly the achievement of a terminal objective.

--May support other enabling objectives

--Identifies the behaviors necessary to demonstrate the achievement of a particular task
State and discuss the three parts of a learning objective.
1. Behavior Element- defines what the learner should be able to do as an outcome of training.

2. Condition Element- defines aiding and limiting factors upon the student in satisfying the performance requirements of the objective.

3. Standard Element- specifies the criteria the students’ performance must meet. Standards are defined as time, accuracy, quantity or speed.
Explain the differences between the following:

1. Course Learning Objectives (CLOs) and Terminal Objectives (Tos)

2. Topic Learning Objectives (TLOs) and Enabling Objectives (Eos)
1. Course Learning Objectives (CLOs) and Terminal Objectives (Tos).
--a. CLO- reflects the specific skills and knowledge required in a job. Used in NAVEDTRA 131A format for developing course curriculum.

--b. TO- is a specific statement of the performance expected from a student as the result of training. Used in NAVEDTRA 130A format for developing course curriculum.

2. Topic Learning Objectives (TLOs) and Enabling Objectives (Eos).
--a. TLO-states performance(behaviors), conditions and standards for knowledge and skills students must acquire as a result of satisfactorily completing the topic.

--b. EO-A specific statement of the behavior to be exhibited, conditions under which it is to be exhibited, and the standard (specification) to which it will be performed. EOs support the course mission statement. Used in NAVEDTRA 130A format for developing course curriculum.
Explain how Course Learning Objectives (CLOs) are developed.
CLOs are “developed” by selecting the appropriate, already-prepared Course Learning Objective Model Statements. These “Model Statements” correspond to the Training Objective Statement Group, and Training Objective Statements (TOS), you chose while developing your Training Path System (TPS).
State the difference between the Terminal Objective and the Course Mission Statement.
The primary difference is that a TO relates to trainee behavior, while the Course Mission Statement is descriptive of the course—not the trainee.
How are part numbers determined?
The Part Number is derived from the PPP Table Number (for example; PPP Table Number is S0136):

-When the PPP is covered without interruption—S0136

-When coverage of the PPP is divided into two, or more, parts (called “split parts”)
S0136/1-1st usage
S0136/2-2nd usage

-When more than one PPP is covered in the part, the number of the primary table is used
List four of eight ways to sequence a course.
A course can be sequenced by:

1. Job Performance Order-order in which the skills of the job are performed

2. Chronological Order-sequence flows from part to part, section to section, and topic to topic according to the order in which the events covered occur in time

3. Critical Sequence-order in terms of their relative importance

4. Simple to Complex-sequenced in terms of increasing difficulty

5. Comparative Sequence-teach what is already familiar before teaching the unfamiliar

6. Relationship of like COI elements
--a. Dependent relationship (those that must be mastered first are taught first)
--b. Supportive relationship (learning of one COI element transfers over to another COI element and makes mastery of the second element easier.)
--c. Independent relationship (relationship of like COI elements is such that sequencing is not a major factor in learning)

7. Principle of reverse sequencing-you may want to reverse one or more of these sequencing techniques (for example, least critical to most critical)

8. Combination approach-use a mixture of the methods described to sequence elements of the COI in a logical teaching order
Discuss the purpose of the DEVELOPMENT PHASE of the ISD Model.
During the Development Phase, the actual development of the training Materials takes place, guided by the approved Training Course Control Document (TCCD).

Define the following terms:

1. ADL:

1. The advanced Distributed Learning initiative is a technology development effort sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) in coordination with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). It is motivated by a vision of the future—one in which shareable courseware objects are assembled in real time from a global information network to create on-the-fly instructional or performance-aiding interactions with learners.

2. SCORM is a set of specifications that, when applied to course content, produces small, reusable learning objects. SCORM was a result of the Department of Defense’s Advance Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative. SCORM grew out of events that started back in 1996, when the DOD began exploring ways to increase readiness and reduce duplication of training efforts through the use of network and Web-based technologies. The objective was that SCORM compliant courseware elements cab be easily merged with other compliant elements to produce a highly modular repository of training materials.
Discuss the purpose and use of a Learning Management System (LMS).
An LMS is a software that automates the administration of training events.

The LMS registers users, tracks courses in a catalog, and records data from learners; it also provides reports to management.

An LMS is typically designed to handle courses by multiple publishers and providers. It usually doesn’t include its own authoring capabilities; instead, it focuses on managing courses created by a variety of other sources.

An LMS is a high-level, strategic solution for planning, delivering, and managing all learning events within an organization, including online, virtual classroom, and instructor-led courses.

The primary solution is replacing isolated and fragmented learning programs with a systematic means of assessing and raising competency and performance levels throughout the organization.

The focus of an LMS is to manage learners, keeping track of their progress and performance across all types of training activities. It performs heavy-duty administrative tasks, such as reporting to Human Resources (HR) and other enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems but isn’t generally used to create course content.
Discuss the purpose and use of a Learning Content Management System (LCMS).
LCMS is a software application that allows trainers and training directors to manage both the administrative and content-related functions of training.

An LCMS combines the course management capabilities of a learning management system with the content creation and storage capabilities of a content management system.

The focus of an LCMS is on learning content. It gives authors, instructional designers, and subject matter experts the means to create e-learning content more efficiently.

The primary business problem an LCMS solves is to create just enough content just in time to meet the needs of individual learners or groups of learners. Rather than developing entire courses and adapting them to multiple audiences, instructional designers create reusable content chunks and make them available to course developers throughout the organization. This eliminates duplicate development efforts and allows for the rapid assembly of customized content.
Define Reusable Information Objects (RIOs).
Reusable Information Objects (RIOs) is a collection of content, practice, and assessment items assembled around a single learning objective. RIOs are built from templates based on whether the goal is to communicate a concept, fact, process, principle, or procedure.
What are the five (5) types of RIOs?
1. Concept
2. Fact
3. Process
4. Principle
5. Procedure
Define Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs).
Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) is a collection of RIOs, overview, summary, and assessments that supports a specific learning objective.
What are the 5 sections of an RLO?
1. Overview
2. PreTest
3. Lesson
4. Summary
5. Quiz
Describe Navy E-Learning.
E-learning covers a wide set of applications and processes, such as Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual classrooms, and digital collaboration. It includes the delivery of content via Internet, intranet/extract (LAN/WAN), audio-and videotape, satellite broadcast, interactive TV, and CD-ROM.
How can the Navy E-Learning site be accessed?
The Navy E-Learning can be accessed from either the and site URL(S).
