An Evaluation of Computerized Tests as Predictors of Job Performance in Three Navy Ratings: I. Development of the Instruments. Final Report.
Cory, Charles H.
The potential usefulness of computerized tests for supplementing paper-and-pencil measures for predicting job performance abilities was the objective of a series of studies. This report covers the initial test development and analysis research. Eight computerized tests were constructed to measure five personal attributes identified in previous research as being important for job performance. The experimental battery also contained nine previously developed tests. The battery was administered to 385 enlisted personnel and test results and interrelationships were analyzed in conjunction with operational written test and biographical variables. (NTIS)
