Abstract:

Two new tests for use at the officer and student officer level were constructed for implementation is fiscal year 1966. These are the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test-66 AFOQT and the AFROTC Pre-Enrollment Test-66 PET. The former succeeds AFOQT-64 in the normal two-year replacement cycle and closely resembles AFOQT-64 in format, type of content, and procedures for construction and standardization. It yields Pilot, Navigator-Technical, Officer Quality, Verbal, and Quantitative composite scores. Standardization was accomplished with reference to the Project TALENT battery in a manner which permits relating scores on the new test form to performance of Air Force Academy candidates and 12th grade males. A similar procedure was used in standardizing AFROTC PET-66. This test is an adaptation of the former Precommission Screening Test-62. It yields a total score based on verbal and quantitative items. It is intended as a screening device for college freshmen who apply for the AFROTC program. Author
