While the IMTA was originally created to discuss research pertaining to testing, assessment
and psychometrics, the Association evolved over the more than 50 years of its existence and nowadays covers
a much broader scope. The topics currently
addressed, encompass most facets of behavioral sciences applied to the Military. These include selection, classification, training,
morale, mental health, leadership, family issues, security and Military aspects of Human Resources, Human Factors and Human Effectiveness.
In order to maintain the continuity and recognition of the Association, it was decided not to change its name.
