Research Institution
TiER1 Performance Solutions proposes to develop CATS (Competency-based Adaptive Training System)a system to address common warfighter training needs in the Air and Space Operations Center. The goal of this effort is to prepare warfighters for mission readiness by integrating: a Learning Management System (LMS), which delivers personalized content and learning events as needed and provides continuous evaluation of performance; a Learning Content Management System (LCMS), which maintains a catalog of learning and assessment opportunities; and a Competency Management System (CMS), which manages domain-specific competency models and learner proficiencies. At the core of the CATS solution are: (1) a competency framework that defines the knowledge, skills, and abilities required by operational role; and (2) an evidence framework that incorporates personal performance data from online (SCORM) and instructor-led training events, live simulation (HLA/DIS), on-the-job experience, and manually reported ratings to derive the learner"s current competency proficiencies. Individual proficiency gaps are leveraged into learning objectives, which are continuously evaluated as performance data is collected, enabling the dynamic creation and adaptation of learning paths using all available development opportunities. CATS is a flexible system that incorporates the learner's previous experience, training, and proficiency to efficiently prepare them for new career or mission goals.
