SCREENING TESTS FOR RATING PHOTO INTERPRETERS

CAN INDIVIDUALS BE RATED ACCORDING TO PHOTO INTERPRETATION ABILITY PRIOR TO SPECIALIZED TRAINING? RESULTS OF A TWO- YEAR STUDY INVOLVING 99 UNIVERSITY STUDENTS INDICATE THAT SOME MEASURE OF PHOTO INTERPRETATION PERFORMANCE MAY BE RELIABLY PREDICTED BY SCORES ON TWO SPECIALIZED SCREENING TESTS ADMINISTERED AT THE ONSET OF TRAINING. ONE REQUIRED THE IDENTIFICATION OF 39 SKETCHES THAT DEPICT OVERHEAD VIEWS OF COMMON URBAN, RURAL, AND PHYSIOGRAPHIC FEATURES. THE OTHER TEST CONSISTED OF 25 IMAGE IDENTIFICATIONS AND MEASUREMENTS MADE ON PREPARED STEREOGRAMS. IN COMBINATION, SCORES ON THESE SCREENING EXAMINATIONS ACCOUNTED FOR ABOUT ONE-HALF OF THE VARIABILITY IN FINAL PHOTO INTERPRETATION PERFORMANCE RATINGS. /PE/
