Abstract : The Pensacola Motion Sickness Questionnaire (MSQ) was subjected to an item analysis using successful completion of the flight training program as the criterion for item selection. The scoring key that resulted was cross-validated on a new sample and a statistically significant correlation obtained. When included in the multiple prediction formulae used at this facility to predict training success, the MSQ made significant increases in the multiple validity of the formulae for predicting both successful completion of flight training and voluntary withdrawal from training.
