Abstract:

Applicants for enlistment in the naval service are currently administered the Applicant Qualification Test AQT early in enlistment processing. This use of the AQT is intended to save the cost of sending probable failures to the Armed Forces Examining Stations where the Armed Forces Qualification Test AFQT is given. The AQT is also used as a direct screen for Naval Reserve applicants, and for men with prior enlisted service, as well as for identifying men eligible for the High School Graduate Procurement Program in which high school students are guaranteed a specific type of Navy training following graduation. Unlike the Navy Basic Test Battery, the AQT yields only a single total score. The purpose of the project was to construct a short test battery which would reflect both the individual Basic Test Battery scores and the AQT total score, yet which could be administered within a maximum time limit of one and one-half hours.
