An attempt to predict future skill composition by devising a method for computing stable skill distributions for an extremely simple model. The solutions of this model are then compared with the solutions of somewhat more realistic ones. A subsequent paper will describe how the technique considered should be combined with information concerning effectiveness in such a way as to offer insight into good retention goals.
