The History of Military Testing

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is currently used by all of the armed services in the United States as a means to screen recruits. The official ASVAB website includes a brief history of Military Testing. That history includes a link to sample questions from the Army Alpha and Beta tests used in the early 1900's.

The History of Military Testing can be found at http://www.official-asvab.com/history_res.htm and the homepage for the ASVAB testing can be found at http://www.official-asvab.com/index.htm. You might want to look through the section devoted to researchers which includes information on the ASVAB structure, validity and norming.
