Abstract : Spearmans Law of Diminishing Returns (SLODR) postulates that correlations among cognitive ability tests are lower for higher ability groups, yet higher for low-ability groups. SLODR also suggests that specific ability tests are most likely to add incrementally beyond general cognitive ability to the prediction of performance for high-ability occupations. Results demonstrated that the Cyber Knowledge test added incremental prediction to general cognitive ability and the primary cognitive group factors against key criteria for high-ability soldiers assigned to cyber occupations. These criteria include training performance ratings and in person-job fit outcomes. Includes PowerPoint poster presentation (1 slide). Presented at 2016 SIOP Conference in Anaheim, California, April 14-16, 2016.
