Abstract : Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) Forms Q1 and Q2 were developed to be highly similar to the just previous Forms P1 and P2 in test content and length, item difficulty and discrimination, and stylistic features. Approximately half the items were new and half were from Forms P. Forms Q1 and Q2 were preliminarily equated on Air Force Academy students, Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets and Officer Training School cadets. Scoring tables were developed and AFOQT Forms P1, Q1, and Q2 were administered operationally to over 3000 cases per form. Equating tables were accomplished using the data from these actual applicants. It was concluded that these scoring tables should be implemented to make Air Force Officer selection decisions.
