Abstract : As presently constituted, the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), used by the Army for Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) assignment decisions, does not contain any non-cognitive vocational scales. However, until recently for such scales were included: Maintenance Scale, Electronics Scale, Attentiveness Scale, and Ground Combat Scale. The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) supported this project to develop a more comprehensive and differentiating measure of non-cognitive vocational interests, called the Army Research Institute Interest Survey (ARIIS), to assist in classification and assignment decisions.
