Two validation studies, one concurrent and one predictive, were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, used since January 1976 for acceptance of applicants into the Armed Services and for initial assignment to school after completion of recruit training. ASVAB subtest and current selector composite validities against a final school grade FSG or days-in-training DAYS criterion were determined for each school sample. Validities of many other two-, three-, and four-test sets of ASVAB composites were also determined to discover more valid composites than those operationally used. In addition, in the predictive study, revised composites developed in a related study on Basic Electricity and Electronics BEE courses were validated in several follow-on A schools. Author
