Abstract:

An experimental two track training system, developed for use in the Avionics Fundamentals course, was evaluated against the conventional one track training system. The conventional course lasted 16 weeks. The two track system consisted of a regular track that was identical to the conventional 16-week course and an accelerated track that lasted 10 weeks. Students were graded on a scale with a maximum of 99, an average of 75, and a minimum passing grade of 63. Students in the two track system made grades that were, roughly, one point lower than those made by students in the one track system. This difference decreased to, roughly, half a point in subsequent courses. The two track system provided a reduction in training time of 1.38 weeks per student. This amounts to a savings of approximately 181 student man years per year. Author
