Abstract : The Airman Qualifying Examination (AQE) provides four aptitude indexes (General, Administrative, Mechanical, and Electronics) which are used in the selective recruiting and initial assignment of basic airmen. This report presents normative data for nationwide groups of 12th grade boys and 12th grade girls, and for groups of airmen assigned to technical training in the Air Force. Percentile distributions are presented for all 12th grade boys and all 12th grade girls by type of high school and/or curriculum, by region of the country, and, by size of city within each region. For those not entering college after high school graduation, percentile distributions are shown by region of the country and by city size within each region. For the Air Force technical school groups, percentile distributions are presented along with estimates of the probable success in training of airmen at each aptitude index level. (Author)
