dc.description.abstract This investigation was done at the request of an institution to determine the predictive validity of a test battery for selecting programmers. The failure of some programmers during training, costs money. Five hypotheses were used to test the programmers for successful training and work success. The test scores of an experimental group of 158 male and female programmers were used to determine the reliability of the test battery, while 142 programmers from the same group were used to test the hypotheses. The tests and criteria were suitable and reliable for administration to the particular group, but a profile analysis showed that the respective criteria did not comply with the requirements of multidimensionality. Statistical techniques and calculations were used to test the five hypotheses. Except for the Memory Test, the tests correlated significantly with the criterion of training success but yielded smaller correlation coefficients for work success. The statistics calculated indicated that the requirements for success differed for the respective criteria. It is proposed that when selecting candidates, work success rather than training success be stressed, and that the tests with the greatest predictive validity for work success be used. The course should also be extended to include more practical training. en
