World War I and World War II created the need for this type of testing and provided a large body of test subjects. The early emphasis (World War I) was on determining the level of literacy amongst a heterogeneous group. Subsequent testing targeted aptitude in order to better fill roles, such as those provided by officers who obtained commissions from other than the United States military academies, or to meet the need for increasingly complicated skills that came along with technological progress, especially after World War II. 
As with other measurement attempts, the AGCT ran into controversy during the era of the Vietnam conflict.  Yet, the requirement did not abate, leading to improvements in the application and use of the standard testing methodology.
