Abstract:

Research effort resulted in the implementation of a number of operational measures of military trainability successive forms of the Armed Forces Qualification Test AFQT and the Enlistment Screening Test EST and supplementary screening measures for more specific aptitudes, the Army Qualification Battery AQB and tests for women applicants, the Armed Forces Womens Screening Test AFWST, Womens Enlistment Screening Test WEST, and Womens Army Classification Battery WACB. With the introduction of a number of new and replacement tests during FY 1962-63, task activity turned to new approaches to screening problems and to contributions of screening activities to classification and other manpower management functions. Research plans were formulated to study seasonal and regional fluctuations in AFQT score distributions, the aptitude composition of the civilian manpower pool, new approaches to the detection of deliberate failures, feasibility of shortened screening tests, and practicability of automated testing.
