Prediction Tables for Avionics Fundamentals Course, Class A.
Baldwin, Robert O.; Johnson, Kirk A.
This study was conducted in 1966 to provide the avionics fundamentals course, class A, with a number of tables for predicting academic performance, either by precourse variables or by grades made early in the course. A means of identifying potential setbacks and potential failures was also desired. In September 1966 a 16 week course replaced the old 19 week course. Since it was felt that data available on students in the old course might not give an accurate picture of student performance in the new course, a statistical means of prediction was requested to serve as an aid in counseling. In essence, these tables perform routine, time consuming mathematical operations based on test scores and course grades. When modified by the considered judgment of a counselor or a review board, according to the special circumstances surrounding each student, the tables should give good predictions of student performance. The document includes 14 tables and charts and two references. (ly)
