Abstract:

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB is a joint-service battery used by the U.S. military services for enlistment qualification and occupational classification. All of the military services validate the ASVAB from time to time to ensure that composites of the ASVAB tests they use to classify their enlisted members to occupations are the most predictive of military training 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 technical manual is a synthesis of important technical and procedural information used by the Navy in support of the program and is published so that new industrialorganizational psychologists specializing in tests and measurement within the selection and classification context can have a comprehensive set of guidelines when they are assigned to conduct ASVAB validationstandards studies. The companion manual, Introductory Guide for Conducting ASVAB ValidationStandards Studies in the U.S. Navy, should be read first for that context NPRST-TR-15-1.
