ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examined the value of the Balance Problems Test (BPT) as a predictor of educational achievement defined by final grades in the Airplane and Engine (A & E) Mechanic General course. According to the author, the BPT was used to obtain an index of relative preference for two problem-solving techniques. He found that the final grade in the A & E course is positively related to the number of problems correctly solved in the BPT. He concludes that the BPT is as good or a better predictor of final mechanical school grade than any of the standard scores studied.
