Abstract:

All large-scale data collection efforts must contend with the issue of data quality. This research memorandum examines the quality of data collected for the infantry portion of the Marine Corps Job Performance Measurement Project. Particular attention is focused on data inconsistencies and imputation of missing data. This project is a large-scale effort to validate the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB against measures of job performance. Over 2,500 infantry-men in five military occupational specialties MOSs were tested for two days each on a variety of performance measures. They were also readministered the ASVAB and given a battery of other new predictor tests. Although significant precautions were taken to minimize the possibility of poor or missing data, there were still individual cases in which the accuracy of the data was questionable and other instances in which the data simply were incomplete.
