Abstract : The report describes the development and standardization of the 1964 form of the Airman Qualifying Examination (AQE-64) for use in the Air Force selective recruitment and high school testing programs. It was designed to parallel AQE-62, its immediate predecessor, and also to capitalize on research data that indicated the predictive efficiency of the aptitude composites could be increased through crediting completion of certain high school subjects. Standardization of AQE-64 was by the equipercentile method but norms were tied to Project TALENT samples of 1960 rather than the World War II mobilization population previously used. Complete statistical data on test items, composite score distributions, and intercorrelations for TALENT and AQE subtests are a part of the report. (Author)
