Development and Standardization of the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test Form L.
Miller, Robert E.
In accordance with the normal replacement cycle, a new form of the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) was developed for implementation in Fiscal Year 1972. The new form is designated Form L. It resembles other recent forms in type of content, organization, and norming strategy. Like other forms, it yields pilot, navagation-technical, Officer quality, verbal, and quantitative composite scores for operational use. Standardization involved the use of the Project TALENT battery in a way which permits relating AFOQT scores to Air Force Academy candidates and to 12th grade males in the Project TALENT national survey. Form L differs from earlier forms by the introduction of Digitex answer sheets and by a slight shortening which does not reduce the total amount of elicited scorable behavior. Some new validation for flying training criteria are presented. (Author)
