Abstract:

A statistical study of training- and job-performance measures of several hundred Air Traffic Control Specialists ATCS representing Enroute, Terminal, and Flight Service Station specialties revealed that training-performance measures reflected 1 performance in the training laboratories 2 academic performance and 3 instructors opinions. In the job-performance area, supervisors seemed to be evaluating 1 overall performance of an ATCS 2 his interpersonal orientation 3 job orientation 4 job potential 5 job performance and 6 emotional stability. By examining the practicability of the job-performance measures by training performance, aptitude tests, previous job-relevant experience, and demographic characteristics, evidence was elicited that 1 the ATCS specialties differ in the characteristics required for job performance 2 Terminal supervisors more consistently evaluate their ATCS in comparison with Enroute supervisors 3 opinions of the ATCS training-course instructors are the best predictors of subsequent job performance and 4 aptitude tests, previous job-relevant experience, and age at entry into training are related to job performance but not at very high levels.
