The Department of Defense has requested that the armed services explore the feasibility of developing an entry test battery common to all U.S. military services. Each of the armed services is currently performing research in support of this effort. The first stage in the Armys program is to analyze, in an Army population, the relationship between Army tests and certain Navy and Air Force tests. The primary relationships examined in this report are between each of four Army Classification Battery ACB Form 1973 subtests and the Navy Electronics Technician Selection Test ETST Form 7. The four ACB subtests considered are Mathematics Knowledge MK, Science Knowledge SK, Electronics Information EI, and Mechanical Comprehension MC. In addition, relationships between ETST scores and certain other Army tests scores are also presented.
