A three-year program of research was directed at the development of paper and pencil measurement techniques that would permit the assessment of the potential motivatibility of subjects in experiments concerning the effects of environmental stress on human performance. A largely empirical approach was used in this research. Performance measures of a large number of subjects on several different tasks were used as the criterion measures in item analyses of several personality inventory tests. The resultant pool of cross-validated items will, it is hoped, represent a step toward increasing the precision of performance research.
