Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate the usefulness of a commercially available engineering and physical science aptitude test for increasing the accuracy of predictions of pre-flight technical grades. Correlational analysis showed that increases in the accuracy of predictions of pre-flight technical course performance were obtained by adding Engineering and Physical Science Aptitude Test scores to current selection test scores in a weighted composite.
