(2) Mental skill. Apply the "rule of 9" to a described burn victim. Classify a
series of patient descriptions as minimal, immediate, or expectant for mass casualty
treatment. Analyze the equipment and supply needs for training a group of twenty
students in the specified tasks.
(3) Physical skill. Swim ashore. Adjust the sight to the selected target.
Handle the equipment safely.
(4) Attitude. Agree to abide by the majority vote. Defend his position
without antagonizing others in his unit. Volunteer for an extra-duty assignment. These
types of statements are often difficult to write.
e. Develop the Condition Statement. This part of the training objective should
specify the conditions under which the objective is to be accomplished. The conditions
are generally those which will make the task specific or unusual. These would include:
(1) Time. "Under the cover of darkness" or "in the predawn hours" will
specify time. If daylight is indicated or if time is unimportant, this would not be specified.
(2) Special supply or equipment needs. "Using a specially-filtered infusion
set" or "by using a job aid" would be examples of needed items. If pencil and paper are
the only supplies required, these are usually not listed.
(3) Environmental conditions. "During a nuclear, biological, or chemical
(NBC) attack" or "in a densely-forested area" are special conditions.
(4) Limitations or restrictions. "After successful completion of an advanced
training course" and "under the direct supervision of a physician" are restrictive
conditions. Such items as a current health card or an Army driving permit are also
restrictive because the training objective cannot apply unless these permits are in force.
f. Standards. The standard will indicate how well the task must be done in
order to satisfy the training objective. If the task is to be completed without error, this is
generally implied and need not be stated (see figure 4-2).
(1) Accuracy. The accuracy statement tells "how many" or "how much" will
be considered sufficient for the satisfaction of the training objective. "Seven out of ten
tries," "within 50 meters," or "calibrated within two millimeters" are all accuracy
standards. If the standard is to attain seventy percent accuracy on a pencil and paper
test, this need not be stated. Seventy percent accuracy is a widely used Army
standard. The accuracy statement always specifies the minimum acceptable
