THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SELECTION TESTS IN PREDICTING PERFORMANCE AT COAST GUARD CLASS A. SCHOOLS: I. MACHINERY TECHNICIAN SCHOOL, YORKTOWN, VIRGINIA

Coast Guard recruits were administered the ASVAB and BTB tests at Recruit Training Centers. Subsequently, their Class A School performance data was sent to Coast Guard headquarters, i.e. final school grades, attrition information, and rephase information. The data collected at Machinery Technician school (MK) was correlated with test scores. Regression analyses revealed that the BTB and ASVAB composites are good predictors of performance at MK school. The new composites suggested from the results produce higher correlations with final school grade than the present composites. Accordingly, the new composites are recommended as replacements for the present BTB and ASVAB composites.
