Abstract:

A study was conducted to determine the degree of association between the Scholastic Aptitude Test SAT, the ACT test of the American College Testing Program, the Air Force Officer Qualification Test AFOQT, and grade point average GPA for AFROTC cadets entering the Professional Officer Corps during Fy 85. A total of 3575 cadets reported in the Cadet Personnel System CPS were selected for study. The 11 variables selected for study are described in AFROTCR 45-13, AFROTC Selection, Enrollment, and Reporting System Senior Units Only. The data file from the SIS run was converted from BCD to ASCII using a facility of the Honeywell 6000 computer at MaxwellGunter AFB. The ASCII file of 3578 cadets was then checked for accuracy. Three cases were deleted for incompatibility with known limits leaving the 3575 cadet sample. AFROTCXPX FORTRAN routine CORLATE 2 was then used to correlate each variable with every other variable and produce a number of descriptive statistics. This report presents descriptive statistics and correlation coefficients from 11 academic ability variables as they are reflected in the 1985 POC cadet pool. These data are of use as base line on the cadet population, and as comparative data for use in validity research.
