Abstract : A preliminary validation study was conducted on the predictors of the Biosystem Personnel Test Battery. The battery consisted of 22 predictor variables including tests of ability, personality and preference inventories and a personal history questionnaire (PHQ). Criterion variables were 11 job performance dimensions, identified in an earlier study, and an overall global criterion of performance. Subjects were 30 experienced marine mammal trainers for which test battery data had been gathered over a period of several years. Ten supervisors rated the 30 subjects on each of the criterion dimensions using a specially-constructed marine mammal trainer performance rating checklist.
