Abstract:

To provide an aptitude description of the recent airman recruiting population, score distributions on the Airman Qualifying Examination were collected for the population tested from January-September 1962 on AQE-F, and from October 1962-December 1963 on AQE-62. AQE-F samples were male enlistees from each of the 10 regional areas, a female sample, and a recruiting sample drawn randomly from nonenlistees and recruits. The AQE-62 samples included 2 samples of male recruiting examinees and 2 of women. The AQE-F data provided regional comparisons that supported previous findings of differences in mean aptitude indexes. The sex findings showed that the male recruits averaged higher on mechanical and electronics tests than the women. The recruiting population of AQE-62 averaged higher than the AQE-F recruiting sample on all aptitude indexes, indicating that the high school testing program of the USAF recruiting Service is having a favorable impact on the quality of Air Force enlistees.
