Abstract : Currently there is a paucity of research that has been conducted to improve the selection process for airline passenger baggage screener personnel. Careful selection of these personnel is important to obtain the best qualified personnel and to mitigate the characteristically high employee turnover rate that is associated with the training losses in this industry. This report describes the development and evaluation of two computer-based cognitive instruments that were examined as possible selection tools. The results from a concurrent validity pilot study demonstrated a strong relationship between measures from the predictor instruments and selected performance criteria.
