Abstract:

Subtest scores achieved by enlistment accessions on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB are used to select and classify applicants in Army Military Occupational Specialties MOS. Research is underway to validate ASVAB scores for prediction of job performance in the Army. This report describes a research effort to evaluate the accuracy of recorded ASVAB subtest scores. The results of the reliability research indicate that reported scores were consistent with the ASVAB subtest scores computed by an independent contractor, using the same raw data. In addition, analyses were made of a sample of FY 1981 Army applicants who repeated the ASVAB, having failed to achieve the required cut-score on the first test. These applicants showed greatest improvement on the speeded subtests.
