Abstract : Since 1946, Air Force selection tests have been standardized to the World War II draft-eligible population. Nationwide norms for male 18-yearolds and 12th grade students, as of 1960, have been determi5ed for composites of Project TALENT testb selected to correspond to the 4 aptitude indexes derived from the Airman Qualifying Examination (AQE). In this study, 8 airman samples took the AQE and the selected TALENT tests to provide data for distributing scores on AQE that will rank recruits in terms of the full range of talent in the draft-eligible population. These conversion tables make it possible to standardize new tests directly to the 1960 population. (Author)
