Abstract : This report provides a utilization assessment of the Air Force Reading Abilities Test (AFRAT). The AFRAT was developed to standardize the evaluation of the reading ability of Air Force personnel and to replace the various commercial reading tests previously used. Agencies having functional responsibilities for programs related to the AFRAT were contacted concerning its utilization. The Air Force has implemented the AFRAT as its primary operational reading tests. Forms 81A and 81B of the test were implemented in March 1982 to support many formal training programs and on-the-job training. It was designated as the operational test to screen enlistees in Basic Training for inadequate reading ability and was implemented in Officer Training School to identify officer trainees who needed to improve their reading ability.
