Record Of Performance

During live fire, the soldier's hit-and-miss performance is recorded to facilitate the instructor/trainer's critiques or to indicate where more training is needed. A master score chart, indicating each soldier's scores for each exercise, encourages a competitive spirit within a unit. It also aids in determining which soldiers require close supervision or remedial instruction. Two methods used to record firing performance are manually marked scorecards and automated computer printouts.

Manual Recording. When manual recording is used, the unit provides soldiers for recording information on either DA Form 3601-R (Single Target —Field Firing Scorecard) (Figure G-39) or DA Form 5241-R (Single and Multiple Targets—Field Firing Scorecard) (Figure G-40). (See Appendix H for blank reproducible copies of these forms.)

NOTE: Peer coaches should not be used as scorers; their duty is to observe the firer.

Automated Recording. When field firing exercises are conducted on the new family of automated field fire ranges, a computer printout is provided for each firing order. At the conclusion of each firing order, the range NCOIC completes the printout and ensures the soldier identification is matched with each firing point(Figure G-41). He adds the soldier's name or roster number to the top of each lane/firing point data column. Based on a one-round allocation for each target exposure, data should be collected on hits, misses, no-fires, and repeated shots to assist the instructor/trainer in assessing firing proficiency.
