Abstract : The hypothesis that different combinations of tests might be needed for men with little schooling than for those at a higher level of education is tested. Multiple regression analyses of the data for two large samples of airmen showed little gain in accuracy of prediction by separate composites for three educational levels. Of the individual predictors of Air Force success, amount of education proved the most valid, further justifying the Air Force in limiting recruitment to high school graduates. (Author)
