A battery of Graphic Information Processing
Tests (GRIP) was developed to utilize the display
characteristics of computer terminals in measuring
abilities important for processing visually presented
information. The GRIP battery was especially intended
to assess five "real world" personal attributes
which have been difficult to measure with
paper-and-pencil tests. The experimental tests were
administered to 385 Navy enlisted men and evaluated
in conjunction with paper-and-pencil tests of
the same attributes as well as with operational cognitive
tests and biographical variables. The GRIP
tests were found to be useful for measuring short-term
memory and sequential reasoning abilities.
