Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the relative validities of the components of the pre-flight officer-like-quality grade OLQ and the weights which, when applied to these components, would yield the most valid composite grade. The current procedure of using plus and minus factors for cadet rank, activities, and demerits makes the OLQ grade less accurate as a predictor of subsequent attrition. Weightings of .4, .2, .4 for average peer rating, average instructor rating, and average military rating, respectively, would increase the validity of the OLQ grade. The average OLQ grade should not be modified by addition or subtraction for cadet rank, activities, and demerits.
