Assessing learning from a mixed-media, mobile counter-IED trainer (bibtex)
by Hays, Matthew, Silva, Teri M. and Richmond, Todd
Abstract:
Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) cause more than half of Coalition casualties. In 2009, the Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) developed a mobile counter-IED training system. This system–the Experiential Counter-IED Immersive Training Environment (ExCITE)–was described at I/ITSEC 2010. Since that time, researchers at the ICT have developed several ways of assessing learning from ExCITE. One measure is a paper-based pretest/posttest. Another is a system that tracks trainees' responses to interactive training tools as well as their performance during a simulated vehicle patrol. This paper describes how these measures were created and refined. This paper also presents findings from our empirical studies on the effectiveness of this counter-IED training.
