This paper is the result of work on ways computer technology can be used to enhance the military services' training program, as well as to help the selection and placement processes. There is considerable experimental evidence that testing systems that incorporate admissible probability measurement have wide application in important areas of military testing and evaluation. As shown here, the nature of Admissible Probability Testing (APT) and its extensions invites the use of computers in their application. The author reviews the motivations and theoretical foundations of APT, describes the role of the computer in APT, and discusses our experience to date with the computer-based system. 25 pp. Ref.
