OCCUPATIONAL NORMS IN TERMS OF MINIMUM QUALIFYING SCORES FOR THE APTITUDE MEASURES WHICH PREDICT JOB PERFORMANCE WERE ESTABLISHED. THE GENERAL APTITUDE TEST BATTERY AND TWO CRITERION MEASURES OF SUPERVISORY RATINGS WERE TESTED ON TWO SAMPLES, ONE CONSISTING OF 34 MALE AND 56 FEMALE CAMP COUNSELORS EMPLOYED IN NEW YORK STATE SUMMER CAMPS IN 1965, AND THE OTHER OF 24 MALE AND 41 FEMALE CAMP COUNSELORS FROM FIVE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SUMMER CAMPS. FINAL NORMS WERE DERIVED ON THE BASIS OF A COMPARISON OF THE DEGREE TO WHICH TRIAL NORMS CONSISTING OF VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF GENERAL LEARNING ABILITY, VERBAL APTITUDE, CLERICAL PERCEPTION, AND MOTOR COORDINATION, AT TRIAL CUTTING SCORES, WERE ABLE TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN 66 PERCENT OF THE SAMPLE CONSIDERED TO BE GOOD WORKERS AND 34 PERCENT CONSIDERED TO BE POOR WORKERS. NORMS OF 100 FOR GENERAL LEARNING ABILITY, 95 FOR VERBAL APTITUDE, AND 105 FOR CLERICAL PERCEPTION PROVIDED OPTIMUM DIFFERENTIATION FOR THE OCCUPATION OF CAMP COUNSELOR.
