An earlier part of this project was to develop a prototype job-oriented performance test for the SAGE positions of Manual Data Input Supervisor and Technician. The primary goals of the present project were to up-date the test and modify it so that a it could be administered and scored by Air Force personnel and b further forms of the test applicable to other SAGE Direction Centers could be constructed by in-service personnel. Since SAGE Direction Centers differ in their levels of operational readiness, it was found necessary to construct two different forms of the test one based on Program Model 3 and the other on PM Model 5. The test based on Model 3 procedures was administered to Boston Air Defense Sector personnel, while the test using Model 5 procedures was administered to the personnel at the Syracuse Air Defense Sector. The techniques employed in the construction and modification of the tests seem to be useful for the development of similar tests for local needs or for later programmed models. Author
