Abstract:

In accordance with the normal two-year replacement cycle, new forms of the Air Force officer qualifying test and the pre-enrollment test were constructed. Both tests are designated by their fiscal year of implementation. AFOQT-68 closely resembles the previous form in type of content, organization, and forming strategy. It yields pilot, navigator-technical, officer quality, verbal, and quantitative composite scores. Standardization was accomplished in a way which permits relating AFOQT scores to performance of Air Force Academy candidates and 12th grade males. A new feature of AFOQT-68 is the provision of separate norms which take into account the effects of differences in level of formal education at the time of testing in various commissioning programs. Differences in educational level are also provided for in the norms. To facilitate test administration, this test is considerably shorter than the previous form but otherwise resembles it. PET-68 yields a total score based on verbal and quantitative items. It is intended as a screening device.
