Abstract : Forms 3 and 4 of the Contract Student Selection Test (CSST) were designed to replace Forms 1 and 2 as the scholastic aptitude measure used in the selection of Contract students for the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps. Data from the operational administration of Forms 3 and 4 in the fall semester of 1961 indicate that the two forms are psychometrically similar and may be used interchangeably. The new forms appear to be satisfactory in terms of their Kuder-Richardson reliabilities (.87 and .89) and in terms of their corelations (.80 and .79) with the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). Tables are provided to permit conversion of CSST Form 3 or 4 total scores to Navy Standard Scores, percentile scores, or to equivalent SAT scores. The SAT conversion tables will reduce the need for testing with the CSST at those colleges where SAT scores are already on record. (Author)
