Abstract : The Career Force research project is the second phase of an Army program to develop a selection and classification system for enlisted personnel, based on expected future performance. In the first phase, Project A, a large and versatile database was collected from a representative sample of Military occupational Specialties (MOS) and used to (1) validate the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (AsVAB) and (2) develop and validate new predictor and criterion measures representing the domain of potential measures. Building on this foundation, Career Force research is finishing developing the selection/classification system and evaluating its effectiveness, with emphasis on assessing second-tour performance. This fourth year of the project completed analyses of test results from the Longitudinal Validation cohort, including the second-tour sample. Development of optimal test batteries for predicting first- and second-tour performance, attrition, and reenlistment prospects is continuing.
