Abstract : It is known that formal education has the effect of elevating AFOQT scores. In the study the magnitude and validity of these effects for each composite were evaluated, taking applicants as representative of two different educational levels at the time of testing. For the pilot composite, separate conversion tables appropriate to the two levels were constructed by determining flying deficiency elimination rates for both groups at each pilot percentile and assuming that equal elimination rates represent equal aptitude. For all other composites, separate tables were constructed by using an Officer record examination as a control of academic aptitude and making equipercentile conversions from distributions in the samples.
