Abstract

Aptitude Tests are special kinds of measurements used mainly for guidance in school. A person does not "have" an aptitude in the same sense that he has brown eyes or large feet. But he does have a combination of interest and experience in certain kinds of activity. A person who likes to tinker with machinery will do better on a test of mechanical aptitude than a person who has never tinkered with machinery. A school counselor would say that the person has an aptitude for mechanics. That is, he has a better chance of succeeding in mechanics than in some other field where he has a little interest or experience. his study proposed to determine the impact of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) as a predictor of business aptitude for high school students in the North Forest Independent School District, Houston, Texas.
