Abstract:

This study was designed to evaluate a psychomotor testing instrument known as the ZITA Zero Input Tracking Analyzer. This instrument was being considered as a prediction device in the selection of applicants for the U. S. Navy aircrew training program. Analysis of the data obtained from six subjects all U. S. Navy pilots over 26 hours of testing, showed the machine capable of consistent results in distinguishing between subjects with respect to this particular psychomotor task. A major disadvantage of the ZITA that became apparent was the amount of time approximately 2 hours required before learning curves were leveled out and the rate at which different individuals develop their learning curve.
