A Plan for Scaling the Computerized Adaptive Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). Research Report 83-1.
Green, Bert F.; And Others
The Navy Personnel Research and Development Center is developing a computerized adaptive test (CAT) administration, scoring, and reporting system for use in the selection and classification of military applicants. Scaling of the CAT version of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) will produce CAT scores comparable to the current printed ASVAB scores. Anticipated advantages of replacing the printed ASVAB with the CAT version include increased accuracy in the assessment of recruit aptitudes, and substantial reduction in test revision costs, administration time, and test compromise. The rationale for the CAT system is discussed. The authors present a plan for placing CAT scores and those obtained from paper-and-pencil administrations on the same scale. A two-stage scaling process is proposed for Forms 99 and 100 of the ASVAB. (Author/DWH)
