Abstract : Current techniques for assessing a pilot's progress through flight training are often inefficient and may introduce various forms of bias into the testing situation. These limitations could be overcome through the use of an automated adaptive performance testing system. This document details development of an automated performance testing system for A-10 pilots undergoing training on controlled range ground attack patterns on the Advanced Simulator for Pilot Training (ASPT). Included are descriptions of recommended test items arranged int a 20-step testing syllabus, a candidate performance measurement structure, and a preliminary adaptive testing model. Also included is a functional specification for implementation of this system on the ASPT. Finally, the report contains plans for the empirical development and refinement of the Adaptive Performance Testing System. (Author)
