Abstract:

The relationships were investigated between age, educational level, and AFQT scores of the 1965 airman accessions and their reenlistment desirability at the completion of their initial tour. The largest percentage of undesirable enlistees was noted in high school non-graduate, Category 4, and 17-year-old groups. Using three categories of variables, it was found that it would be possible to eliminate 34 percent of the undesirables, although 76 percent of the individuals falling in this three category group actually proved to be successful in their military career. It was emphasized that caution should be used in attempting to establish a screening procedure to identify undersirable enlistees since a significant number of potentially qualitied personnel might be excluded at the same time.
