Abstract:

Air Force Officer Qualifying Test composite scores were obtained for 274 Airman Education and Commissioning Program AECP officer training school OTS students and 15,532 undergraduate flying training UFT students. College grade point average GPA were also obtained for the AECP group. The objective was to determine the extent of any racial bias present in certain officer selection and classification procedures. For non-whites in the AECP group, OTS graduation rates and final grades were lower than would be expected from test scores or GPAs. UFT graduation rates for Blacks were also over-predicted by AFOQT composites.
