Abstract:

The investigation attempted to determine whether instructor differences could be measured quantitatively if such differences affected the grades which they assigned if such differences affected the students progress through the flight training program. Using an unstructured rating form, it was found that reliable instructor differences could be identified in terms of how they characteristically evaluate students. Furthermore, such differences were found to affect the grades which they assigned, although the magnitude of such effects was quite small. Moreover, these differences were not found to affect the students progress through the program in terms of his pipeline support the contention that flight instructor standardization procedures from an operational point of view have been successful.
