Abstract:

Army personnel managers have a continuing need to select, classify, and assign to training and jobs large numbers of young men who enter the services. Since the Army Classification Battery ACB is an integral part of the assignment process, accuracy of scores has a significant influence on the appropriateness of assignments. A new ACB and aptitude area system has been developed. The present technical research report describes the new psychological test battery and new aptitude areas and assesses the effect of the changes on the utilization and performance of Army input.
