This 4.5-day course, designed for the test practitioner, 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.

SOT 310 Science of Test: Experimental Design and 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:

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. ***This course requires access to AFIT's network. In order to access AFIT's network, an AFIT-specific DD Form 2875 is required & must be returned to AFIT/LS NLT 14 DAYS prior to the class start date students that do not complete the form WILL BE CANCELLED from the class. The form & instructions on how to fill it out are located on AFIT/LS's website at: click on "Student Information" and select select "DD Form 2875". Any questions can be directed to AFIT/LS Training Administrators at DSN 785-7777x3164 or e-mail No walk-in students will be allowed.***

Target Audience:
The course is open to Acquisition and Sustainment officers (0-1 and above) and civilians (GS-7 and above).
