Abstract : The Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) is used throughout the Air Force as a measure of aptitudes for a variety of officer personnel programs. A new form of the test is produced every two years to minimize obsolescence of content and the possiblility of compromise. The problem was to construct a new form of the AFOQT, to be known as Form K, for implementation in Fiscal Year 1970. This problem involved taking steps to insure that scores obtained with the new form have the same meaning as scores obtained with earlier forms. These scores are known as the Pilot, Navigator-Technical, Officer Quality, Verbal, and Quantitative composites. (Author)
