Abstract : The report documents research on a new approach to deriving human performance measures and criteria for use in automatically evaluating trainee performance. The ultimate application of the research is to provide methods for automatically measuring pilot performance in a flight simulator or from recorded in-flight data. An efficient method of representing performance data within a computer is described. A system of adaptive mathematical and computer models is developed to examine representative performance data corresponding to known skill-levels and to independently develop a unique method of performance evaluation. Three types of models are developed, each of which is designed to derive and use (in an adaptive performance evaluation scheme) unique types of performance measures. (Author)
