Abstract : The report describes the approach used and the progress made in the application of existing knowledge and technology to the test of computerized techniques which incorporate adaptive training conceptsand improved techniques for the prediction of Naval flight student training success. Because these computerized techniques require a unique combination of special data inputs, data file organization, and specific computer software routines to process the file data, this combination is called a data management system. The system will consist of a newly defined data bank and file organization of student pilot selection, performance and administrative data; computerized techniques for processing these data are developed to support a series of fourteen system modules. When implemented the data management system is expected to provide improved procedures for the handling of student pilot training. These improved procedures can be expected to result in reduced attrition in the flight syllabus, more effective placement of students in the pipelines, in possible changes in the flight syllabus content, flight hours, and syllabus duration for certain students.
