This report discusses the research that was done in response to the National Research Council's recommendation to examine deleting either the Form Matching or the Tool Matching parts from the GATB in order to allow for increased time limits for three of the GATB's power tests. The potential implications are documented and alternative procedures for computing GATB aptitude composites are developed.
