Abstract:

Candidates for admission to the Air Force Academy are required to demonstrate their qualifications on a battery of selection tests. Successful candidates, upon admission to the Academy, are administered a battery of experimental tests as part of a program for the development of officer selection and classification instruments. The experimental tests are not used in making decisions affecting cadets, but both the selection and experimental batteries are validated against criteria which become available at the end of the fourth class freshman year. The document discusses results using the criteria of academic standard score, military rating, extra-curricular activities standard score, composite standard score, and early motivational elimination.
