Abstract:

Aptitude composites for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB were developed using training success and Skill Qualification Test SQT scores, measures of job proficiency, as the criterion. The aptitude composites had high validity in the range .52 to .75 for predicting job proficiency. Criticisms of the usefulness of SQTs as measures of job proficiency are addressed.
