The Central Role of General Ability in Prediction.
Thorndike, Robert L.
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v20 n3 p241-54 Jul 1985
Double cross-validation of a test battery against multiple criterion variables found the first general factor accounts for most criterion variance in cross-validated regression weights. Small contributions are made by mechanical/technical and psychomotor factors. It appears a common general factor plays the major role in validity for a range of criterion variables. (NSF)
