Abstract : This report compares examinee performance on the selection and classification batteries used by the U. S. Coast Guard -- the Coast Guard Selection Test (CGST) and the Navy's Basic Test Battery (BTB). For this investigation, test information curves were used to compare location of optimal measurement and measurement accuracy (or quantity of information) on the operational form of the CGST, an alternate form of the CGST, and Form 6 of the BTB.
