I like it TR. Although the self grading part is still a bit tricky considering how many students I've had who swear they are performing a maneuver / drill correctly but in reality are not anywhere close. Some could be attributed to my presentation skills but I feel far more is attributable to their mental willingness to see past their pre-conceived notions of what works and what would work even better. For example lets consider the common certification task of RRX. A movement error I see quite a lot is excessive pivoting resulting in skidding, even among our cert 3 candidates. Why? I feel it's due to their past success doing skidded turns and a lack of understanding that the maneuver includes a strong focus on edging with a second and IMO just as important focus on minimizing steering inputs. Especially through the turn entry / crossover. Is the corrective solution to have them edge more, add more pressure, or stop pivotting the skis so strongly. Without actually seeing them perform the maneuver it's hard to offer meaningful advice. It's even harder to list most of the common errors and how to correct them.
Totally agree...It concerns me that this even needed to be stated.
