Abstract : In a previous report, specifications and guidelines were given for the implementation of Performance Measurement and Feedback (PMF) systems for the Leopard 2 and YPR-765 driving simulators (Korteling & Padmos, 1992). In connection with an update program for both simulators, the Dutch Armed Forces have decided to implement both systems. Therefore, the above-mentioned report is revised, taking into consideration changes in the learning trajectories, and comments of the, by now, experienced users of both simulators. Report IZF 1992 A-20 is herewith expired. The PMF systems objectively measure the critical task variables of a selection of the most relevant subtasks. Application of these systems is expected to improve the efficiency of the training of student drivers on these simulators. In order to enable system engineers to program and implement these systems on both simulators, the present report provides an exact and detailed description of scores, vehicle reference points for calculation of scores and for the trajectories over which scores will be measured, and weights for subtask variables and for clusters of subtasks. In addition, general requirements are provided with regard to the calculation and presentation of scores and marks, database management, and system operation.
