Testing of Project 100,000 Personnel.
Dudek, Edmund E.; And Others
Part of the 1968 conference of the Military Testing Association, this open panel meeting discussed the testing of Project 100,000 personnel (disadvantaged young men previously not acceptable for military service, who are now being recruited or induced under new standards adopted in 1966). Papers were presented on problems of recruit training, personnel selection and classification by the Armed Forces Qualifying Test, general problem areas (psychometrics, test difficulty, test content, cultural factors, fear and low motivation toward testing), and the challenge of improving "new standards" testing for reenlistment and other purposes.
