MULTIPLE TASK PERFORMANCE AS A PREDICTOR OF THE POTENTIAL OF AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER TRAINEES: A FOLLOWUP STUDY
The current professional status of 229 air traffic controller trainees tested in an earlier series of complex performance studies was determined by reference to the official FAA personnel roster some 2 to 2 1/2 years later. Point-biserial correlations between the previously obtained performance measures and the retention/termination status of the trainees were computed; correlations were also computed between the criterion used in the earlier study (instructor ratings of trainee potential) and the retention criterion and between the Civil Service Commission (CSC) air traffic control specialist (ATCS) aptitude screening battery scores (where available) and the retention criterion.
