Abstract : A new form of the Airman Qualifying Examination (AQE-J) was developed and standardized for implementation in July 1971. The test replaces AQE-66 in the Air Force's selective recruiting program. Descriptive data and statistical characteristics of AQE items and subtests are presented, as well as intercorrelations among Project TALENT tests and AQE variables. AQE-J was formatted to present homogeneous items in blocks, thereby taking into consideration the examinee's mental set. The changes incorporated in the test should allow for more efficient administration, scoring, and gathering of biographical data; further, research data should be more readily accessible. (Author)
