Abstract:

This paper reports the results of a study to assess the feasibility of using rating scales to estimate the aptitudes or abilities required to operate and maintain Army systems. If accurate aptitude estimates can be obtained in this manner, the methodology could prove to be useful in two manners. First, the scales could be used to estimate the aptitude requirements of Army systems still in the design process. Second, aptitude requirement information from systems about to be, or already, fielded could be used to develop selection and classification instruments to assist in the assignment of personnel to jobs.
