A frequently encountered issue in both aviation training and aviation training research is that of student performance modelling. A potentially rich source of student performance data exists in many if not all aviation training organisations
in the form of narrative reports written after flying or simulator sorties. This paper describes how grounded theory technique, developed by Glaser and Strauss (1967) was used to perform sampling and analysis of such data to develop a model of student performance. The application of the technique is illustrated with a case study from the military flying training domain.
