Abstract:

Over the past few years the Army National Guard ARNG has been in the process of converting to the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB to test non-prior service applicants. During the same period of time, the number of non-prior service accessions has decreased. This study is an attempt to determine if conversion to the ASVAB is the reason for the decrease in non-prior service accessions and, if so then to identify why the conversion is causing the decrease. The study concludes with a series of recommendations to assist the ARNG in making the conversion and in meeting their manpower goals.
