A behavioral model Ing fl Im was lnplemented In a U. S. Navy Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Defense (CBRD) training program. The modeling fi Im was supplemented with various combinations of amount of rehearsal and the inciusion of learning points. The training, due to the nature of the material, is stress Inducing. The ut i I I ty of behavioral model Ing to faci I itate Increased posttraining performance was assessed. Four hundred eightyseven male, Navy recruits participated in the study. A pre-test/post-test experlmental design measured subject performance on five dependent performance measures. Data were gathered using both questionnaire and behavioral performance ratings. The behav I or a I mode I Ing interventions did result in significantly higher posttraining performance than the performance of the no model Ing groups on some of the dependent performance measures. These differences were significant at the .05 and .01 alpha levels. Model Ing combined with repeated rehearsal yielded the most stable performance results. The application of the current findings, and the needs for further research are discussed.
