Abstract : Statistical bases were provided to allow control, in test revision, over the evaluation test characteristics of mean, standard deviation, reliability, and validity. The evaluation test characteristic of validity was given special attention. Increasing the validity of an evaluation test was considered at both the item and the test outline levels. The following conclusions are drawn from the study of the November 1966 MOS evaluation test for Field Radio Repairman, MOS Code 31E40: (1) The total evaluation test had a validity coefficient of .48 (significant at the .01 level); (2) optimal weighting of BSMA's did not significantly increase the validity of the total evaluation test; and (3) further increases in validity should be expected in future administration with proper item selection.
