MADDEN, HOWARD L.; TUPES, ERNEST C.
CONVERSION TABLES ARE PRESENTED FOR ESTIMATING READING ACHIEVEMENT (READING GRADE LEVEL AS MEASURED BY THE CALIFORNIA ACHIEVEMENT TEST AND SCALED SCORE AS MEASURED BY THE DAVIS READING TEST) FROM THE AIRMAN QUALIFYING EXAMINATION GENERAL APTITUDE INDEX. DISTRIBUTIONS OF ESTIMATED READING GRADE ARE SHOWN FOR NON-PRIOR-SERVICE AIRMEN ENTERING THE AIR FORCE IN 1964 AND 1965 FOR THE TOTAL GROUP AND FOR SUBGROUPS SPLIT ON YEARS OF EDUCATION COMPLETED. DISTRIBUTIONS OF ESTIMATED READING GRADE ARE ALSO PRESENTED BY CAREER FIELD FOR AIRMEN ASSIGNED TO 29 CAREER FIELDS. IT IS POINTED OUT THAT A WIDE RANGE OF READING ABILITY WAS FOUND WITHIN EACH CAREER FIELD AND THAT THE CAREER FIELDS DIFFERED CONSIDERABLY WITH RESPECT TO AVERAGE READING ABILITY. THE IMPLICATIONS FOR THE WRITING OF CAREER DEVELOPMENT COURSES AND TECHNICAL MANUALS ARE DISCUSSED. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE DEFENSE DOCUMENTATION CENTER AS AD 632 182. (AUTHOR)
