The Relationship between Navy Classification Test Scores and Final School Grades in 98 Class "A" Schools.
Thomas, P. J.
The Basic Test Battery (BTB), a tool in the Navy's enlisted classification system, was developed to predict performance in Navy schools. Men scoring well above the minimum selection scores are expected to demonstrate greater school success than those who are assigned to the schools with minimum or waivered scores. This study attempted to determine if the BTB is meeting this goal and if the findings of similar reports covering earlier time periods hold true for recent samples. (Author)
