Abstract:

A sample of 4,502 basic airmen, assigned to the security police career field, were administered an experimental battery consisting of biographical, attitudinal, and interest items. Aptitudinal scores and criterion data inout of service after completion of technical training were retrieved from the airman record files. Multiple linear regression analyses were accomplished to determine the utility of aptitudinal and inventory data in predicting adaptability to the security police career field. The multiple correlations of the final selector composites derived from this study were .46 and .47. Since the small number of eliminees in the sample precluded cross-application of regression weights, it was recommended that further validation be accomplished to determine the reliability and stability of the predictor composites.
