    Not sure if this is the same as what you're talking about.

    Aptitude Inventory Measurement Service


    The basic purpose of AIMS is the scientific study of human behavior based on accurate measurements. It has the larger, more pragmatic goal of planning a happier and more successful future.

    As individuals are tested, information about their traits becomes the primary source of data for the research program. The knowledge derived from this research benefits AIMS program participants who are making educational and vocational decisions.

    TFore:

    I received some additional information, with regards to the AIMS test. The test is an Army test and given to applicants who are enlisting with a GED diploma. The Navy utilizes it when an applicant may have been home schooled.

    Oh, okay. I was home schooled so I guess that's why I'll be taking it.

    Okay, I've finally located the real scoop!

    Understanding and Improving the Assessment of Individual Motivation (AIM) in the Army's GED Plus Program

    Abstract : The Assessment of Individual Motivation (AIM) test was developed by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) to assess work-related temperament characteristics. In February 2000, the Army implemented AIM as a new market-expansion enlistment screening tool under the "GED Plus" program. Under this program, no%high school diploma graduates who might otherwise be ineligible for military service can enlist if they score sufficiently high on the AIM and meet other program requirements. This project addressed several operational issues pertaining to AIM's ongoing use in the GED Plus program. Post-implementation investigations have included (a) a preliminary examination of the operational AIM's validity against attrition under the GED Plus program, (b) the scaling of AIM alternate forms, (c) an examination of variables that might be used to supplement AIM in the prediction of first-term attrition, (d) fairness analyses, and (e) efforts to develop improved ways to score the AIM.
