Abstract : Research was undertaken to develop a system for predicting the impact of aptitude requirement adjustments on Air Force initial-skills training. The resulting model accounted for a large amount of the variation in training outcomes and was found to yield path coefficients that were highly interpretable in predicting outcomes. The implications of model components for understanding resident initial-skills training are discussed, along with potential applications of the model for personnel and training management.
