A plan is offered for scaling the computerized adaptive test CAT version of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB. The scaling will produce CAT scores that are comparable to the current paper pencil ASVAB scores. The plan provides for scaling of a provisional CAT, Form 99, using data from field tests of prototype equipment, to be followed by scaling of final Form 100 on operational equipment. Each calibration includes recalibration of test items in the CAT environment, and scaling of revised CAT scores. Procedures are stated for composites, including AFQT, VE, and occupation speciality composites. IOTE procedures are outlined. Author
