Abstract:

The present study is an analysis of the Air Training Commands ATC field evaluation program. Data obtained from this program are used to provide feedback to the instructional system regarding how well graduates of resident courses perform in the field subsequent to graduation. Shortcomings in the present system were identified through extensive and comprehensive group interview methods. New methods of data collection and analysis were devised to increase the usability of the information gathered by ATC evaluation divisions. These methods were demonstrated in a routine evaluation of the Aircraft Electrical Systems Specialist Course, an apprentice level course taught at Chanute AFB. The demonstration was judged to be successful, and the report illustrates alternative methods of tabulating and interpreting data. It was recommended that these results be reviewed by ATC officials prior to system-wide modifications.
