Development of Motivation Assessment Techniques for Air Force Officer Training and Education Programs: Motivation for Pilot Training.
Taylor, Calvin W.; And Others
The study was an investigation into the relevance of motivational factors operating in various Air Force training programs, especially Air Training Command's Undergraduate Pilot Training Program. The research project, as a whole, was directed toward understanding motivational factors as they distinguish those who drop out of training from those who successfully complete training. Investigation of the possible motivational factors behind voluntary elimination was designed to lead to the development of a motivational screening device which would reduce the voluntary eliminees from Undergraduate Pilot Training as well as other Air Force training programs; and the development of an instrument which would measure change in motivation as a result of Air Force training.
