Abstract:

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB is a joint-service battery used by the U.S. military services for enlistment selection and occupational classification decisions. All of the military services validate the ASVAB from time to time to ensure that the composites of ASVAB tests they use to classify their enlisted members to occupations are the most predictive of military performance, and that cutscores are set to manage academically related training attrition. The Navy, however, is the only military service to support an operationally focused ASVAB ValidationStandards program. This Introductory Manual provides the background information and context that both policy makers and researchers should know about the program s objectives and processes. The companion manual, Technical Guidance for Conducting ASVAB ValidationStandards Studies in the U.S. Navy is intended for those who actually conduct the work.
