The study documents the initial validation of two psychomotor tests developed by the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory. The tests, known as Two- Hand Coordination and Complex Coordination do not closely resemble the old. These tests were validated on a sample of 121 student officers scheduled for pilot training. Criteria were graduation from pilot training and attrition by reason of flying deficiency. Multiple regression analyses supported the conclusion that the two psychomotor tests together make a significant contribution to prediction of graduation in the context of the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test. Correlation data suggested that Complex Coordination is the more effective of the psychomotor tests when taken singly.
