A study was conducted evaluating the psychometric properties of an Unit-Conduct of Fire Trainer (U-COFT)- based tank gunnery skills test. Problems with the relevancy, reliability, and validity of current tank gunnery skills measures warrants the development and evaluation of alternative measures of tank gunnery skills. Overall, low test-retest reliabilities were detected for some of the U-COFT tank gunnery measures, with reliability coefficients ranging from .21 to .78. Tank Commander (PC) effects of varying magnitude were also found for seven of nine U-COFT tank gunnery measures.
