Research Institution
PDRI proposes to develop a computer-administered and scored situational judgment inventory to predict combat pilot performance. Situational judgment inventories present respondents with a series of job-relevant situations and ask them to indicate which of several alternative actions would be most effective and which would be least effective in each situation. This inventory will consist of items describing pilot-relevant situations that tap personality dimensions important for effective functioning as a combat pilot, and that are not measured adequately by the AFOQT or the BAT. We also plan to develop a software shell to administer and score the inventory. This shell will be compatible with the BAT/PORTABAT sortware, and will be flexible enough to permit the administration and scoring of almost any multiple-choice test. Phase I efforts will entail deciding upon personality constructs to measure using the inventory, developing four or five situational judgment inventory items tapping each of those constructs, designing demonstration software to administer the items, and establishing plans for the development of a flexible software shell.
