Description:
This one week course, designed for program office and ALC personnel, emphasizes classical design principles and teaches students basic techniques and processes needed to create a statistically rigorous and defensible test for military weapon systems. A well-designed test can lead to reduced development lead time with fewer tests required, provide greater insight to system performance, and ultimately lead to fielding better, more reliable systems. The student will learn how to plan, conduct and analyze tests efficiently in this course.

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.

Target Audience:
Acquisition and Sustainment Personnel, GS-11 and above, O-2 and above.
