This report describes the performance of the air traffic control classes in the Flight Service Station Training Program from 1981 to 1985 on the skills tests and laboratory exercises in preflight (pilot briefing), inflight and emergency services. Over 80% of the final grade for the program is based on these measures. The average scores of the classes on the skills tests, especially on inflight, have increased from 1981 to 1985. The different forms of both the preflight test and the emergency services test appear to be equivalent as intended; however, Form G and Form H of the inflight test are easier than Form D and Form E. The average scores of the classes on the laboratory exercises in preflight and emergency services have been fairly constant from 1981 to 1985; however, the averages on the inflight laboratory exercise have declined steadily. Overall, these classes have performed better on the skills tests and laboratory exercises, except for inflight, than did the reference classes of 1978 and 1979.
