Abstract
DURING PHASE I, THE AVIATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES GROUP PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A PILOT JUDGMENT SKILLS TEST BATTERY FOR USE ON AN IBM PC/XT APPLICABLE TO THE MILITARY PILOT OF HIGH PERFORMANCE AIRCRAFT. THIS TEST BATTERY WILL BE DESIGNED TO DISCRIMINATE BETWEEN JUDGMENT AND DECISION MAKING THROUGH THE USE OF A CONCEPTUAL MODEL WHICH IDENTIFIES THE TYPES OF INSTRUMENTS NEEDED FOR EACH ELEMENT IN THE JUDGMENTAL PROCESS. SIX BASIC TESTS ARE PROPOSED FOR THIS BATTERY AS FOLLOWS: KNOWLEDGE, VIGILANCE, RECOGNITION AND DIAGNOSIS, ALTERNATIVE GENERATION AND SELECTION, RISK ASSESSMENT, AND RISK-TAKING TENDENCY. EACH OF THE TESTS WILL BE DESIGNED SO AS TO PERMIT THE USE OF FEEDBACK FOR TRAINING PURPOSES. A BRIEF TRAINING TEST WILL BE CONDUCTED TO ASSESS THE VALUE OF THE PACKAGE. THE MAJOR SYSTEMATIC TRANSFER OF TRAINING PROGRAMS WILL BE CONDUCTED DURING PHASE II.
