Abstract : The Airman Qualifying Examination (AQE) yields four separate aptitude indexes: General, Administrative, Mechanical, and Electronics. These indexes are used in selective recruiting and initial classification of basic airmen. This report presents graphic and tabular summary data on the AQE performance of Air Force enlistees for the period 1962 through 1965. Percentile distributions indicate an upward trend in AQE aptitude index levels. There are also indications that positive relationships exist between levels of education and measured aptitude and between region of enlistment and measured aptitude. These findings appear to have direct implications on assignment of enlistment objectives. (Author)
