Various aptitude test scores were correlated with academic grades received by military officers enrolled in the Navy Management Curriculum at the United States Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California . The resulting coefficients were analyzed to determine if the particular tests were valid predictors of academic achievement. Additionally,, an analysis of the data was made using regression techniques in an attempt to provide an insight into possible cut-off scores for use in selecting candidates for the Navy Management Curriculum., The tests used in this study were the Navy Officer Classification Battery (OCB), the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and the Navy Officer Qualification Test (OQT).
