Abstract : This document describes the record layouts of data files collected in the Enhanced Computer Administered Test (ECAT) study. The body of the report describes criterion data at both the test and item levels. Data files for Navy specialty schools are presented first, then Air Force specialty schools, and finally Army specialty schools. Tables for the data files document the line numbers, column numbers, format, variable descriptions, and valid ranges and values. For the Navy, Air Force, and Army specialty schools, Tables 1 through 19 present layouts for all criterion data collected for each school. Each record layout includes detailed notes regarding changes to the course curriculum and/or testing procedures that took place throughout data collection. Appendix A presents file formats for the criterion and predictor data tape. Files 1 through 19 in the appendix contain criterion item level data for all of the 18 schools in the study. (Please note: Machinist's Mate school split into MM1 and MM2.) Files 20 through 33 contain merged criterion item level data, predictor summary scores, and post- enlistment ASVAB scores for the 13 Navy schools. And finally, files 34 through 38 contain merged criterion item level data and predictor summary scores for the 3 Army schools and 2 Air Force schools.
