Abstract:

In the ongoing task to develop test materials that will increase the effectiveness of the operational Army Classification Battery ACB, five cognitive measures of aptitudes and abilities contributing to clerical performance, and seven personality measures were administered to samples of trainees in the Common Specialist Clerk course at two training centers. These experimental measures were evaluated, in comparison with ACB selectors, as predictors of success in the Clerk, MOS 710, program. The experimental tests, as individual predictors, had generally good validity for suc cess in the Clerk Course. Analysis indicated, however, that they would add only marginally to the overall effectiveness of the total ACB for classification to clerical MOS. Potential con tribution of the tests to differential classifi cation is being evaluated more fully in studies of prediction for a wide range of MOS across all non-combat aptitude areas. Author
