(2) Incorporate emergency procedures training into
simulator sorties when practical; however, instructional block
objectives take precedence.
(3) Grade the student's overall EP knowledge and
performance under Emergency Procedures.
10. Mission Grading Procedures And Evaluation Policies
a. General Grading and Evaluation Policy. Maneuver Item
Files (MIFs) listed in the MNTS are minimum stage/phase
completion standards per maneuver. Students who consistently
perform at the absolute minimum standard through multiple
stages/phases may not possess the skills required to complete
follow-on training. A MIF is designed to allow for minimum
performance in a specific area with the understanding that
performance above the minimum MIF will offset the weak area.
Grading Procedures (Aircraft and Training Devices)
(1) Absolute Maneuver Grading. Use the following grading
scale to document the student's characteristic performance on
maneuvers attempted during each sortie. This is an absolute
grading scale. Judge the student's proficiency only against the
item's course training standard. Maneuver grades shall be
consistent with ATF comments.
(a) Demonstrated (NG/1 Level).
1. When the IP demonstrates the maneuver and the
student does not subsequently perform it during the sortie.
2. To indicate accomplishing SSRs.
completed SSRs in the ATF's SSR comments section.
(b) Unable (U/2 Level). Performance is unsafe or
lacks sufficient knowledge, skill, or ability. Deviations
greatly exceed CTS, significantly disrupting performance.
Corrections significantly lag deviations, or aggravate the
(c) Fair (F/3 Level). Performance is safe, but with
limited proficiency. Deviations exceed CTS, detracting from
performance. Corrections noticeably lag deviations, and may not
(d) Good (G/4 Level). Characteristic performance is
within CTS. Deviations outside CTS are allowed, provided they
are brief, minor, and do not affect safety of flight.
Corrections must be appropriate and timely.
