Abstract:

AN, APTITUDE TESTS, SELECTION MARGINAL PERSONNEL To provide information on performance and characteristics of effective and ineffective marginal personnel in the Army, a study was made of approximately 1500 men with experience ranging up to 20 years in four different Army MOSs. The study included a group of men with Armed Forces Qualification Test scores in the marginal range and a comparison group of men in the same jobs, but in the upper AFQT levels. The report describes the bulk of the major study findings including comparisons of the performance of men in different mental categories with different amounts of job experience, comparisons of the performance of special subgroups Negroes and Caucasians, inductees and enlistees, and men with formal and on-the-job training, an analysis and definition of acceptable performance, and a procedure for using job knowledge tests to screen ineffective performers.
