Abstract:

Army personnel managers have a continuing need to select, classify, and assign to training and jobs large numbers of men who enter the service. 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 assignment. A new ACB and aptitude area system were developed which result in an improved system of classification for training and jobs. The publication deals with research conducted to evaluate a large number of tests as predictors of success in the different groups of Military Occupational Specialties MOS and to select tests for aptitude area composites.
