Abstract:

consistency of grades at different reporting periods, and consistency of measured aptitudes and course performance. The three courses selected because of high failure rates for analysis were Machinist 44E, Small Arms Repair 45B, and Fuel and Electrical System Repair 63G. Scores on written and performance tests given at the end of each reporting period in the courses were analyzed in relation to each other, to final course grade, and to ACB test scores. Failure rates on the test during and at end of course were ascertained. Results of the analyses showed that ACB tests had the expected degree of effectiveness as predictors of trainee performance correlation coefficients in the .50s and .60s.
