Stephen Jay Gould : reflections on his view of life by Warren D Allmon( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered by many during his lifetime as the most well-known scientist in the world, Stephen Jay Gould left an enormous and influential body of work. A Harvard professor of paleontology, evolutionary biology, and the history of science, Gould provided major insights into our understanding of the history of life. He helped to reinvigorate paleontology, launch macroevolution on a new course, and provide a context in which the biological developmental stages of an organism's embryonic growth could be integrated into an understanding of evolution. This book is a set of reflections on the many areas of Gould's intellectual life by the people who knew and understood him best: former students and prominent close collaborators. Mostly a critical assessment of his legacy, the chapters are not technical contributions but rather offer a combination of intellectual bibliography, personal memoir, and reflection on Gould's diverse scientific achievements. The work includes the most complete bibliography of his writings to date and offers a multi-dimensional view of Gould's life-work not to be found in any other volume."--Publisher description

Enhancing Quality Control in the Testing of Military Applicants( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Diverse sources of error must be controlled for aptitude tests to have substantial validity. This paper describes a highly cost effective procedure for immediate verification of the veridicality of operational test scores. A continuous need exists to maintain the high quality of testing procedures and of operational test scores used in selecting and classifying enlisted personnel. In a large-scale testing program such as the one that uses the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), the risk of test compromise is always present. A cost effective procedure for detecting the incidence of spurious scores was developed, consisting of (a) comparison of scores on two ASVAB subtests to detect any large differences between them, (b) administration of a 10-minute retest to examinees showing the large difference, and (c) comparison of original and retest scores to verify the incidence of likely test compromise. Tryout of the procedure indicated that the 10-minute retest of fewer than 20% of all examinees could detect approximately 70% of all cases of test compromise. (Author)
Development of Factorially Based ASVAB High School Composites( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is used for selection and classification purposes by the military services and for vocational guidance in high schools. The purpose of this research was to improve score composites for the specific use of vocational guidance in the high schools. Factor analysis was used to cluster the tests into composites based on the underlying dimensions of ability in the ASVAB. A principal factor solution was rotated to simple oblique structure to achieve the following five ability factors: verbal, analytic/quantitative, clerical, mechanical, and trade technical. These factors have high reliability and relatively low intercorrections. One last score test composite, called academic ability, was added to the factorially based composites as an indicator of the ability to succeed at further school or formal training
Exit Survey of First-Term Enlisted Analyzed for Gender, Type of Separation, MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) Traditionality, and MOS physical Demands( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Between September and December 1983, 3,938 first-term enlisted soldiers properly completed an exit survey as they separated from the Army. This report presents the data from the entire survey on demographic characteristics, economic concerns and attitudes. The crosstabulations are in four sets: (1) gender, (2) separation categories (attrition categories and (Expiration of term of service (ETS)), (3) Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) traditionality, and (4) MOS physical demands categories MEPSCAT (Military Entrance Physical Strength Capacity Test). Keywords: Job physical demands, Gender, Personnel retention, Reenlistment
Enhancing quality control in the testing of military applicants by Myron A Fischl( Book )

Development of a Programmed Testing System( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The report describes an automated system for administering, scoring, and recording results of multiple-choice tests. The system consists of examinee station, proctor station, and central computer; the report describes the equipment and the programing characteristics of the respective components. The system is designed for tests tailored to the ability of the examinee, in which a more difficult question is presented after each correct answer or an easier question after each incorrect answer
