Description:
This 5 day course, designed for the test practioner, reinforces fundamentals from SOT 310 and teaches students advanced modeling and analysis methods necessary to create a statistically rigorous and defensible test for military weapon systems. The student will learn how to plan, conduct and analyze tests efficiently. This course introduces new design classes, and provides advanced modeling and analysis methods. Design evaluation topics include power, sample size, optimality, and aliasing criteria.

Prerequisites:
SOT 310 Science of Test: Experimental Design and Analysis I. NOTE: 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 035 – 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.
