Abstract:

An integral part of the F-16 instructional design process involves the development of criterion-referenced objectives CROs and criterion-referenced tests CRTs. This report defines both CRO and CRT as used in the F-16 project. It also specifies procedures and conventions that were used to write them. There are several benefits associated with the use of CROs and CRTs. By following the procedures described in this report, a team of minimally trained people can produce a clear definition of the contents of a training program. The problems of not knowing where to start, guesswork, and confusion are eliminated when this systematic approach is used. CROs represent specific behavioral statements about expected student performance after the comparison of instruction. The conditions and standards of acceptable performance are also part of this statement. The CRTs are a logical extension of the CROs. They measure the attainment of the CROs. Since the CROs consist of actual job performance objectives, the CRTs provide the instructor and the student with a profile of the students strengths and weaknesses on job performance. In summary, CROs and CRTs tell all personnel involved in pilot training just exactly what should be taught, what should be learned, and what level of competence is expected.
