Abstract : The Distribution of Quality Program was instituted in 1982 to influence the placement of high quality recruits into the Army's various accession MOS. Minimum Aptitude Area (AA) score requirements for and the market appeals of each MOS had previously been the driving factors of recruit placement. Although AA scores predict the ability of soldiers to complete entry level training for an MOS, they do not predict soldiers' abilities to meet technical skill and leadership requirements beyond entry level training. Under the DQ Program, TRADOC provides a desired profile of recruits by AFQT category based on training needs and career force requirements in the out years for every accession MOS. This profile enables USAREC to do a better job of distributing high quality recruits.
