Description

Still Soldiers and Scholars? An Analysis of Army Officer Testing traces the history of officer accessions testing and assessment in the U.S. Army from about 1900 until the present day. This book is intended to supplement the series of monographs written by the Army’s Office of Economic and Manpower Analysis (OEMA) that were intended to provide a conceptual and theoretical framework for the development of an Army officer corps strategy.

The focus of Still Soldiers and Scholars? is on the controversial, little understood, and often ignored component of talent management known as cognitive assessment. While the Army has embraced various non-cognitive assessments of individuals’ skills and abilities, which are also admittedly important parts of talent management, it as an institution has been reluctant to place too much of an emphasis on the cognitive testing of officer aspirants.
