Abstract : Two non-intellective measures were evaluated as means for predicting performance in the Avionics Technician Course. An experimental scale based on the Michigan State General Self-Concept of Ability to Learn (SCOAL) scale was found to be as good as the best measures of aptitude in predicting final average (r = .57). The combination of this scale and final average in a previous course with the measure of aptitude that is currently being used for predictions yielded a multiple correlation of .66. (Author)
