Abstract : This report concerns the development and validation of a test of English comprehension. The test is intended for use with foreign nationals who are scheduled to attend United States Air Force pilot training schools. In August 1952, the Air Force Personnel and Training Research Center was directed by the Human Factors Division Directorate of Research and Development Headquarters United States Air Force, to develop an English proficiency examination for selecting Mutual Defense Assistance Program (MDAP) personnel to attend pilot training schools in the United States. Information concerning the problems involved is obtained from conferences with operating personnel at Goodfellow Air Force Base.
