Abstract:

Adjutant General, Dept. of the Army, Washington, D. C. VALIDATION OF ARMY FIXED-WING APTITUDE BATTERY AGAINST SUCCESS IN ROTC FLIGHT TRAINING, by Nathan Rosenberg, Donald M. Skordahl, and Harry Kaplan. May 61, 15p. HFRB Technical research note no. 111 Proj. 2L95-60-001 Unclassified report DESCRIPTORS Military training, Army reserve, Personnel, Classification, Flight, Training, Aptitude tests, Selection. Tests, Analysis. The Army Fixed-Wing Aptitude Battery AFWAB, used operationally since 1956, is designed for use in identifying men who are likely to successfully complete a military flight training program and become useful Army pilots of fixedwing aircraft. To evaluate the AFWAB for use in screening student applicants for Army ROTCFTP, the battery was administered experimentally to 1245 FTP applicants, drawn from samples of academic years 1956-57, 1957-58, and 1958-59. Total AFWAB score and scores on component tests were analyzed in relation to successful completion of the ROTC Flight Training Program. Validity and intercorrelation coefficients obtained indicate that the AFWAB is an effective instrument for trainee selection. All component tests were found to contribute to the selective efficiency of the battery. Unit weighting of component scores was found to be as effective as the administratively more cumbersome optimally weighted score. In view of the findings, continued operational use of the complete battery is warranted. Author
