Abstract : The report describes the continued development of a data management system (DMS) and a student management system (SMS) for use in the Naval student pilot training program. The SMS will be squadron-based and will secure, process and feed back student training progress and outcome performance data to squadron personnel. This system will improve the decision-making involved in the management of the student aviator. A family of feedback products was developed. Provisions for adaptive training are discussed. The capabilities and limitations of current techniques in the handling of student pilots and the availability of new options are described. The limitations imposed by norm-referenced measurement data are cited. Options for the development of criterion-referenced measures are identified. (Author)
