Abstract : Validities of the four aptitude indexes of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), Form 1, and the Airman Qualifying Examination-66 (AQE), were determined for final grades in 46 airman training courses. Comparisons were made between AQE and ASVAB in terms of their ability to predict technical school success. The data demonstrate that ASVAB is an effective instrument for use in the military high school testing program and may be used satsifactorily, as is AQE, to assign enlistees to technical training.
