Abstract:

A study was made of approximately 1800 men with experience ranging to 20 years in five different Army MOSs to provide information about the performance and characteristics of effective and ineffective marginal personnel in the Army. The study included a group of men with Armed Forces Qualification Test scores AFQT in the marginal range and a comparison group of men in the same jobs, but in the upper range of AFQT scores. Performance was measured by intensive job sample tests, job knowledge tests, and supervisor ratings. Biographical questionnaires, a battery of published and experimental tests, and Army records provided information about background, personal characteristics, and military experiences. The report examines the determinants of job behavior and describes the relationships among the three performance criteria used in the study job sample tests, job knowledge tests, and supervisor ratings.
