  • Abstract:
    This report describes and documents Pass-Fail procedures for the new FSS Training Program. New types of measures and sets of norms are used to create standards of performance that students must meet to become eligible for acceptance into the operational facility work force. One type is newly developed FSS Skills Tests, paper-and-pencil simulations of laboratory problems, that were administered to personnel at operational Flight Service Stations across the country for validation, relation to on-the-job performance, and standardization purposes.

    Other types are the new academic block tests and graded laboratory problems and skills tests in the Pilot Briefing, Inflight, or Emergency Services positions is subject to failure. A student who fails to achieve a passing score on a final Phase Grade also is subject to failure. The Phase Grade is weighted average of perfomance on the academic block tests, graded laboratory problems (all positions), and the Pilot Briefing, Inflight and Emergency Services Skills Tests. Norms for each Pass-Fail measure were established on a student population, and scores of the bottom 5% of that normative population on each measure were judged to be unsatisfactory. These were used to establish of cutoff scores for future student populations, which is considered a defensible procedure for Pass-Fail application.
