Abstract : A number of indices that can be generated by computers as aids in managing students were evaluated by applying them to historical data on student performance drawn from the Navy's Aviation Fundamentals Course. It was found that several of the indices now in use are less powerful or less desirable than available alternatives. Some of these alternative indices could be adopted with little difficulty; others would require fairly substantial modifications of the existing system. (Author)
