Abstract: This article, the second of two, presents predictive validity data for on-job performance for a set of computerized Graphic and Interactive Processing (GRIP) tests in conjunction with data for both experimental paper-and-pencil and operational tests. Validity coefficients for job element and global criteria are reported for four different jobs. Experimental variables substantially enhanced the predictive accuracy of the operational battery for Sonar Technicians. Most experimental tests with significant validities were computer-administered. The GRIP tests were more useful than paper-and-pencil tests for identifying personnel skilled in Interpreting Visual Displays, Adjusting Equipment, and Working Under Distractions. They were useful supplements to paper-and-pencil tests for identifying skill in four additional job elements.
