Abstract:

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB was validated against training grades in 34 Marine Corps occupational specialties. Four aptitude composites for assigning Marine recruits to occupational specialties were developed and evaluated. The high predictive validity of the ASVAB supports its continued use for selecting recruits and assigning them to occupational specialists. The fairness of the aptitude composites as predictors of performance was evaluated for racialethnic minorities and females.
