This paper discusses the empirical evaluation of improving generalization performance of neural networks by systematic treatment of training and test failures. As a result of systematic treatment of failures, a discrimination technique using LENGTH was developed. The experiments presented in this paper illustrate the application of discrimination technique using LENGTH to neural networks trained to solve supervised learning tasks such as the Launch Interceptor Condition 1 problem. The discriminant LENGTH is used to discriminate between the predicted "hard-to-learn" and predicted "easy-to-learn" patterns before these patterns are fed into the networks. The experimental results reveal that the utilization of LENGTH as discriminant has improved the average generalization of the networks increased.
