Abstract : This study was conducted to develop new course weights for Aviation Officer Candidate School (AOCS) and Flight Preparation School (FP). The results indicate that new weights should be adopted to maximize validity of the composite final grade in AOCS for predicting completion versus attrition in aviation training. A change of the weights used in FP, however, would create only a negligible increase in validity of the final grade. (Author)
