Mission Grading Procedures and Evaluation Policies
a. General Grading and Evaluation Policy. MIFs listed in
the MPTS are minimum stage/phase completion standards per
maneuver. IUTs who consistently perform at the absolute minimum
standard through multiple stages/phases may not possess the
skills required to complete follow-on training. The 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) Overall Grading
(a) The overall grade for all flights and devices,
with the exception of the NATOPS Check Ride, will be pass/fail.
(b) The overall grade for the NATOPS Check Ride will
be UQ, CQ, or Q as described below:
1. Unqualified (UQ Level) - Fails to meet
minimum acceptable criteria and needs supervised instruction.
2. Conditionally Qualified (CQ Level) - Meets
minimum acceptable criteria and is safe to fly as the pilot in
3. Qualified (Q Level) - Displays good
knowledge of operational procedures and a thorough understanding
of the aircraft.
(2) Standard Maneuver Grading. Use the following grading
scale to document the IUT's characteristic performance on all
flight and device maneuvers attempted during each dual event,
with the exception of maneuvers done during the NATOPS phase of
training. This is an absolute grading scale. Judge the IUT's
proficiency only against the item's CTS.
(a) Demonstrated (NG/1 Level).
Enter "No Grade
1. When the SI demonstrates the maneuver and
the IUT does not subsequently perform it during the event.
2. To indicate accomplishing SSRs for that
event. Specify complete and incomplete SSRs in the ITF's
