An Instructional Systems Approach or FAA Student Centered Training.
Federal Aviation Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Academy has been using a systems approach as part of its training program since 1969. This booklet describes the general characteristics of an instructional system and explains the steps the FAA goes through in implementing the approach. These steps are: 1) recognize a need for training, 2) specify the training required, 3) develop a detailed training plan, 4) consider alternatives, 5) coordination and approval, 6) develop specific instructional objectives, 7) develop criterion test, 8) develop learning strategies, 9) formulate lesson plans and guides, and 10) tryout and revise. In the classroom, student comprehension of the material is monitored as the student answers the instructor's questions on a student response panel. Other feedback is obtained through daily quizzes, problems, and tests. This feedback is the basis for remedial instruction and curriculum revision. (JK)
