This section offers the aviation instructor techniques and methods for assessing how, what, and how well a student is learning. Well-designed assessments define what is worth knowing, thereby improving student learning. Since today’s students want to know the criteria by which they are assessed, as well as practical and specific feedback, it is important for aviation instructors to be familiar with the different types of assessments available for monitoring student progress throughout a course of training, and how to select the most appropriate assessment method.

Flight Literacy RecommendsThe Flight Instructor's Manual - An invaluable reference for flight instructor applicants and serves as an indispensable guide for both new and experienced instructors (CFIs). This manual is organized so that each chapter serves as a stand-alone reference for a particular phase of instruction, allowing each to be used as "how to instruct" guides on topics such as fundamentals of flight instruction (FOI), presolo instruction, first solo to the private certificate, advanced VFR instruction, introduction to aerobatic instruction, and instrument instruction.
