The UTC-PAB contains a menu of 25 tests that were selected from test batteries currently in existence throughout DoD research laboratories. Test selection was based upon established test validity and relevance to military performance. Sensitivity to effects of hostile environments and sustained operations were also considerations involved in test selection. This report presents a scheme for organizing the tests in the UTC-PAB. Also, extensive documentation for each test is presented in the following areas background literature review focusing of the theoretical basis of the test information regarding the reliability, validity, and sensitivity of the test data specifications and instructions to subjects.
