Abstract:

The Officer Prediction Task, established within the U. S. Army Personnel Research Office USAPRO, has a requirement to provide the Army with improved techniques and prerequisites for selecting officers who have aptitudes and other characteristics to meet demands for successful performance in different types of officer command responsibility. The study was centered on the differential prediction of officer performance in the technical, administrative, and combat areas of assignment. Validation of the Differential Officer Battery DOB, a battery of experimental predictors administered in 1961-1962, is in progress. Situational criterion measures, five for each of the three fields, were developed and integrated into a regularly scheduled testing operation administered since July 1963 in a simulated MAAG setting at the Officer Evaluation Center OEC, Fort McClellan. Initial statistical processing has begun.
