Abstract : To provide information about the performance and characteristics of effective and ineffective marginal personnel in the Army, a study has been made of approximately 1800 men with experience ranging up to 20 years in five different Army MOSs. The study included a group of men with Armed Forces Qualification Test scores in the marginal range and a comparison group of men in the same jobs, but in the upper levels of the AFQT distribution. Performance was measured by intensive job sample tests, job knowledge tests, and supervisor ratings. Information about background, personal characteristics, and military experiences was obtained through biographical questionnaires, a battery of published and experimental tests, and Army records. This report, the second in a series presenting extensive data and analyses, describes the data collection instruments and their development and administration. (Author)
