Abstract:

The S.A.M. Steadiness Aiming Test, Form B, proved to be a mechanically satisfactory measure of hand steadiness. The test had excellent reliability. Validity of the test, however, was very low for prediction of success in elementary pilot training. The addition of a verbal stress element to the S.A.M. Steadiness Aiming Test did not result in an increase in validity.
