    The first step in learning is:

    • A.

      Working Memory

    • B.

      Language

    Attention is the first step in learning because it involves focusing on a specific task or information. Without attention, it is difficult to process and retain new information. Attention allows individuals to filter out distractions and direct their mental resources towards learning. It helps in engaging with the material, understanding it better, and encoding it into memory. Therefore, attention plays a crucial role in initiating the learning process.

    Primacy effect states that things learned first are learned easily and retained for a long time without effort. This means that information or experiences encountered at the beginning of a learning process are more likely to be remembered and have a stronger impact compared to information learned later on. This effect is often attributed to the brain's tendency to prioritize and give more attention to initial information, making it more memorable and influential.

    All of the following are features of competency-based training, except:

    • A.

      Learner focused

    • B.

      Aligned to strategic objectives

    • C.

      Focus on KSAs

    • D.

      Task based

    Correct Answer
    D. Task based
    Explanation
    Competency-based training is a learner-focused approach that is aligned with strategic objectives and emphasizes the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs). However, it does not prioritize task-based learning. Instead, it focuses on the overall competencies that learners need to acquire. Task-based training, on the other hand, places more emphasis on specific tasks and activities rather than broader competencies. Therefore, task-based training is not a feature of competency-based training.
