The deck shoudl have a page that says "see WB Milestone" for something.
I completely agree.
I had a 17-year-old high school senior C/SMSgt who went for his Achievement 7 drill test. Of course, he ends up taking the Achievement 8 test.
"How did you do on your drill test?"
"I passed it."
"Yeah? What did it test on?"
"It was a parade column.....blah blah blah."
"At what point did you realize you took the wrong test?"
"Crap. I knew it."
"Just now, huh..."
"I thought it was the wrong test. It's not what I studied."
"So why didn't you speak up right then?"
"I figured I studied the wrong material. I still passed though."
"You passed the wrong test...."
"But I passed the higher level test
Okay, freeze frame. The Achievement 7 drill test is essentially a mixture of a written test and verbal explanation of a Group-level ceremonial formation and a change of command. The Achievement 8 drill test is a physical pass in review. Big differences. You'd know if you were taking the wrong test if you actually read the test.
This is one of those moments when all of the holes in the Swiss Cheese Model started lining up perfectly. Process failure at all levels.
That particular test has been an issue of dissent in my experience...my last squadron had cadets diagram both portions of the test
This is incorrect.
Problem #1 specifically states "diagram."
Problem #2 specifically states that they are to "position the four participants" and "instruct the participants."
It's fine if they have the cadet draw Problem #2, so long as they gather the required participants and instruct them on the performance of the change of command ceremony to demonstrate their knowledge of the material. They cannot be graded based on the drawing.
So far, I have yet to have a cadet pass this drill test in its entirety on the first try. They either didn't study, or they went off tribal knowledge and did not read the actual test answers.
