DETAILS

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

The Schuhfried VTS enables computer-assisted application of a large number of highly diverse psycho-diagnostic tests and measuring procedures. In developing the system much emphasis was placed on transparent structure and largely uniform design. It is therefore simple to operate and easy to understand and does not require any special computer skills.

The VTS basic module is required for administration of any of the available tests.

The Schuhfried VTS supports the administration of both single tests and test batteries. Many of the single tests are available in different test versions. These test versions may differ, for example, in terms of test duration or difficulty or may be parallel forms. They are characterized by different parameters reflecting specific test requirements. They have been designed for administration to a specific population (e.g. psychiatric patients, children, etc.) or for special measuring purposes (e.g. repeated measurements). Test batteries are compiled from the available single tests and test versions.

OVERVIEW

Rasch-homogenous test for pilot selection.

APPLICATION

Assessment of navigational abilities by the measurement of spatial perception and orientation abilities; items are Rasch-homogenous.

Main areas of application: flight psychology (also for problems connected to space flight).

THEORETICAL BACKGROUND

At the center of the test requirements are two ability components: first, the ability to move visualized pictures around one or more of the three spatial axes (mental rotation) and second, the ability to change the perceptive system from egocentric to allocentric. Rasch-homogenizing of the item pool should help to exclude the use of abilities other than the required solution techniques and thus the application of other abilities.

ADMINISTRATION

The task is to say, based on a diagram of an airplane, what changes in position (rotation around 3 axes) must have taken place between two consecutive position displays. The positions are displayed by means of picture pairs with information on the position of the plane, such as result either during a visual flight or an instrumental flight.

TEST FORMS

There is one standard test form available with 13 items.

SCORING

The test is scored according to the following variables:

  • Amount of correct solutions
  • % Correct
  • Amount of incorrect solutions
  • % Incorrect
  • Working time

RELIABILITY

The internal consistency (Cronbach's Alpha) is r=.74.

VALIDITY

Validity with respect to the external criterion (orientation, established on an instrument flight simulator) is rtc=.56, with respect to the internal criterion (Eliot Price Spatial Test) rtc=.64.

NORMS

Norms from an evaluation calibration sample comprised of 596 persons for the age groups 17 to 38 are available.

TESTING TIME

Approx. 30 minutes.
