Abstract:

This report describes technical plans and progress during the second year (Fiscal Year 1984) of work on the U.S. Army's Project A: "Improving the Selection, Classification, and Utilization of Army Enlisted Personnel." Project A is a long-range research program developed by the Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences. The goal is to establish a computerized personnel allocation system to match available personnel resources with Army manpower requirements based on biographical, psychological, and performance measures and a firm quantification of their interrelationships. The second year's activities focused on the following: (1) evaluation of the validity and fairness of existing prediction and criterion measures, such as the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery; (2) development of criterion measures that reflect all major factors of job performance for first-tour enlisted personnel; (3) development and pilot testing of predictor measures called the Pilot Trial Battery; and (4) validation research based on the expansion of the longitudinal Research Database. This validation research led to proposed improvements in the Army's existing procedures for selecting and classifying new recruits. The status and the future directions of army selection and classification research are also discussed.
