Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
The Basic Occupational Literacy Test (BOLT) measures basic skills of educationally disadvantaged adults in four content areas: reading comprehension, reading vocabulary, arithmetic computation, and arithmetic reasoning. Alternate forms of each subtest are available at each of three or four levels of difficulty. The Wide Range Scale is used to determine the appropriate level of each BOLT test for an individual; instructions for administering and interpreting this scale are given. Guidelines for administering BOLT and step-by-step directions for proctoring each subtest are provided. Conversion tables are included for converting raw test scores obtained on each form to standard scores and General Educational Development (GED) level. Finally, brief instructions are given for reporting and interpreting GED levels, using the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. (CP)
