Eval11 Session 739: The Value of Adding Complex Problems to Support Collaborative Learning At the United States Army Command Sergeants Major Development 

11-08-2011 10:23

The purpose of the Army School for Command Preparation (SCP) - Tactical Commander Development Program is to instruct new Brigade and Battalion Commanders in leadership and tactical skills prior to taking over a new command. In the past a Pre - Post Course Survey using nominal 1 - 5 item responses demonstrated that significant learning had taken place for each learning objective. Upon changing the item responses to progressive performance descriptions has presented new opportunities and valuable outcomes for SCP, faculty and students. For SCP significant learning is now specifically tied to performances associated with each learning objective. Faculty can assess learning nuances within each class, and students are clear about progressive performance levels associated with their new role in command.
