Abstract : The Basic Test Battery (BTB), a primary determinant of post-recruit school assignments, requires periodic evaluations. This report of the effectiveness of the BTB selection composites is a simplified presentation of an extensive statistical analysis completed in 1970. Final School Grades (ESG) were employed as the criterion. Validities of the BTB composites were compared with those obtained two years previously. Graphs depicting the relationship between selection composites and FSG were prepared for each of the 104 schools. Rates of academic attrition were also computed. Continued use of the BTB in recruit classification is indicated. (Author)
