Usage conditions apply
This test consists of four sheets of paper, printed on both sides and stapled together. Included are directions and 50 multiple-choice questions involving numerical calculations. Answers were to be blackened in on answer sheets so that tests could be scored by machine.
World War I had seen major development of standardized testing in the United States. The new tests developed in World War II did not have as large an impact, although they were widely used. This examination was developed at the War Shipping Administration, a U.S. government agency in business from 1942 until 1946. This example is Form-AC-1.
