The research objective was to develop guidelines for applying the M1 Abrams tank driver trainer (DT) to train tank drivers, including determining tasks trained, developing rules for applying the training device features, justifying the use of these rules using principles of learning, identifying potential device features, and integrating the DT into the Armor program of instruction. The research classified the DT tasks according to the Training Effectiveness and Cost Effectiveness Prediction Model (TECEP) which prescribes learning guidelines based on the behavioral activities, conditions, standards, and feedback of the tasks. Most of the tasks are procedural, but many of the procedures require voice communications, decision making, or both. One set of the DT programs presents the continuous movement tasks of driving such as steering. Some learning guidelines are common to all DT tasks (e.g., providing active practice and feedback) while others are specific to the type of task (e.g., high fidelity, continuous feedback for continuous movement tasks). Potential DT features pertain to all tasks (e.g. scoring tasks) or to specific tasks (e.g., increasing the number and repetition of decision-making tasks). Integration of the DT into the program of instruction considers use of the M1 tank technical manual, new programs orienting the trainee to the driving block of instruction and the driver's intercom, and changes in the device hardware and software.
