Abstract:

The objectives of Phase I of this research was to develop an aptitude measurement methodology which could be used to design job sample tests for armor crewmen apply the methodology to develop job sample tests and administer the job sample tests to armor crewmen and analyze the test data. Phase II, reported separately, included analyses of the predicted validity of the job sample tests. A five-stage methodology for job sample test design was developed. Stages included task identification task prioritization job sample dimensional analyses trade-off analyses and detailed job sample test development. Seven job sample tests, three computer-based and four hands-on tests, were developed using the methodology. They were Operate Computer Panel, Computer Tracking, Computer Target Engagement, Tank Commander Decision Making, Hands-On Gun Laying, Hands-On Tracking, and Hands-On Target Engagement. Tests were administered to armor crewmen stationed in Europe. The analysis of test data indicated a low degree of intercorrelation among job sample tests which suggested that they were measuring different gunnery behaviors.
