Abstract:

Air Force Officer Qualifying Test AFOQT Form N was constructed as a replacement for AFOQT Form M in Fiscal Year 1978. The new form yields Pilot, Navigator-Technical, Officer Quality, Verbal, and Quantitative composite scores. Two setse of conversion tables are provided for examinees scores according to educational level. Standardization was accomplished by test administration to samples of examines from all major sources for commissions in the Air Force and development of percentile conversion tables. Basic airmen with aptitude at or above the 50th percentile of the general population, Officer Training School candidates, Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps students, and Air Force Academy Cadets composed the majority of the 2,681 cases in the standardization sample. Some 287 second lieutenants were also included because of the substantial number from this population who also take the AFOQT when applying for a admission to special programs such as pilot or navigator training.
