Question:
Does anyone know what type of testing is currently done during Army basic training?

- Are I.Q. / intelligence tests administered? - Are other cognitive or aptitude tests given? - What are the names of these tests?




Answer:
The Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) is a standardized IQ test that has been administered to all entering members of the Armed Services for 30 years or so. The results are one of the IQ databases analyzed in great depth in The Bell Curve. One whole Appendix (Appendix 3) is devoted to this topic. The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) results form part of the AFQT score.

One's AFQT score is shown to correlate well with success in military skills training.
