DA Form 5164-R, Hands-On Evaluation, is a document used for recording the results of the evaluations of soldiers attending training courses. The document is completed by a trainer. The hands-on evaluation form helps the trainer to keep track of the results that show whether the soldier passes or fails a task.
The latest release of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as DD Form 5164-R - was made available by the U.S. Department of the Army (DA) on September 1, 1985, and replaced the now-obsolete December 1982 edition. An up-to-date DA Form 5164-R fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website.
The information provided in the hands-on evaluation form is used for evaluating the soldier's skills and physical training - or P.T. - to find out if they require additional training and if so - in which fields. The same information may later be used to compare P.T. results at different stages of service.
