Abstract The objective of this study was to develop and validate the Marine Air Traffic Controller Suitability Test (MATC-ST), a non-cognitive profile of successful US Marine Corps Air Traffic Controllers (ATC), to assist in the selection and screening process of Marines for ATC duty. Through the use of the Navy Computerized Adaptive Personality Scales (NCAPS), non-cognitive traits were correlated with job advancement and qualifying performance measures, and used to develop the suitability profile of successful Marine ATCs. Hierarchical regression analyses suggest that the MATC-ST accounts for 14% of the variance of ATC job performance.
