The Department of Defense is concerned, from an overall, practical point of view, with improving the “life-cycle training” of military personnel. Such an approach to training effectiveness must consider not only how to achieve more rapid, higher-quality training, but also (a) how well that training will endure, that is, how resistant it will be to infrequent or nonuse of the knowledge and skills (K&S) acquired; and (b) how adequately the training (typically classroom or simulator-based) will prepare the individual for the real-world, job environment. This reports deals primarily with what happens to the products of learning after they have been acquired. Typically, of course, this means that the forgetting process sets in.
