Description:
This two-day course, designed for acquisition professionals, will introduce Science of Test (SoT) – a powerful methodology for test and evaluation that OSD requires to be present in every test program. The course will show how SoT is critical in the planning, design, execution, and analysis of test. SoT uniquely solves the twin challenges of test – how to vary test conditions to explore a broad battle space, while controlling the risks of making incorrect fielding decisions.

Prerequisites:
None, but this course has a heavy emphasis on Probability and Statistic techniques and conducts exercises using statistical theories and software. Students must have an understanding of basic Probability and Statistics theory. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that students refresh their knowledge by taking DAU’s CLE 35 – Introduction to Probability and Statistics computer-based course.

Grade Restrictions:
(none)

Special Requirements:
OSD policy guidance emphasizes that elements of experimental design be included in Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMPs) and Test Plans for approval of those documents. Science of Test is the structured process used to identify the metrics, factors, and levels that most directly affect test execution and that should be reflected in detailed test plans and TEMPs.
