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.
