Abstract : The purpose of the research on which this report is based was to develop and test two types of predictors of the performance of Ml trainees. The first type was to be based on the ASVAB subtests, already being obtained for all soldiers. The second type was based on an approach known as job sample testing. In this context, job sample testing is a means of measuring job or training aptitude by testing part task performance on critical portions of the job. (Author)
