The relationships were examined between the Ball Aptitude Battery (BAB) and the Comprehensive Ability Battery, Differential Aptitude Tests, and General Aptitude Test Battery. Results showed adequate convergent and discriminant validities for all BAB tests except inductive reasoning, which was factorially complex. (Author/GDC)
