Abstract

The present study examined the utility of testingnoncognitive aptitudes as a predictor of graduation from US Air Force airtraffic controller (ATC) training. A total of 1,003 training candidatesparticipated in the study. Results of logistic regression indicate thatnoncognitive areas of functioning at the start of training significantlypredicted graduation beyond the effects of a measure of cognitive aptitude.Higher levels of emotional self-awareness, self-actualization, reality testing,stress tolerance, happiness, and approach to problem solving best differentiatedgraduates from nongraduates. The results of the study suggest such areas offunctioning are important for training success.
