Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) Form T: Psychometric Evaluation of the Situational Judgment Test
The Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) is used to qualify applicants for officer commissioning or for aircrew training as pilots, combat system operators, air battle managers, and remotely-piloted aircraft pilots. This technical report summarizes an item-level and subtest-level psychometric evaluation of the Situational Judgment Test (SJT) included in the AFOQT Form T. Overall, the SJT was found to be relatively easy, with low-to-moderate ability to differentiate among the test-takers with varying standings on the latent trait, and low-to-moderate internal consistency. Analyses at the item-level revealed mostly small mean score subgroup differences, except for one response on Form T1 and two responses on Form T2. Analyses at the subtest-level revealed small to moderate mean score subgroup differences, with Black/African-American test-takers having the largest effect sizes, followed by Asian test-takers. Test-retest reliability and alternate forms reliability were acceptable.
