The report describes research on ways to improve the performance of solar patrol observers, personnel who monitor the condition and activity of the sun through optical telescopes. Section 1 explains the need for visual monitoring to detect, evaluate, and predict solar flares. Section 2 discusses the need for increased objectivity and precision in sensory and perceptual evaluations for solar flare prediction. Section 3 is a report of research based on the foregoing rationale. Modified author abstract
