qThe purpose of this project was to develop an agenda for Special Forces (SF) selection and classification research. Job analysis data, interviews, field observation, and expert judgments about the quality of measures formed the foundation for the Roadmap. The resulting Roadmap is composed of eight projects. Projects 1 and 2, Concurrent Criterion-Related Validation of Readily Available Predictor Measures Against on the Job Performance and Development and Implementation of Content Valid Job Sample Tests, supplement SF selection and classification with measures of leadership, temperament, and communication and analytic skills that could be implemented quickly. Project 3, Validation of Measures of Conventional Army Task Proficiency, Experience and Preference Against Training Performance, addresses the fit between individuals and SF Jobs. Project 4, Validation of Training Performance Against on the Job Performance, would evaluate the usefulness of training data for predicting job performance.
