Abstract:

The composite of Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB subtests used to select applicants for entry-level training in Army clerical schools was evaluated by correlating composite scores with training performance scores. The clerical composite CL had high validity for this criterion but an alternate composite of Arithmetic Reasoning, Paragraph Comprehension, and Mathematics Knowledge scores produced from multiple regression analyses had even higher validity. Differential prediction for classification purposes is discussed. Author
