Abstract:

The study identified associations between measures of performance on a temporal-spatial pattern recognition task with a battery of Air Force test. The 101 subjects differed widely in their ability to correctly perform the tasks, and the 64 patterns also differed in difficulty level. Significant multiple correlations were obtained for predicting the number of correct patterns from the response time measures taken during task performance. The pattern performance measures also correlated significantly with the AF test battery. Correctly performing the pattern recognition task was related to general intellectual ability as well as a problem-solving or a test-wise factor Additional study was suggested to validate the pattern performance measures with the on-the-job criteria.
