   Relevance of ALO rating?
   In 2007, a study was conducted by cadets at USAFA.
    The Ops Research Dept conducted a study to
    analyze the correlation between success at USAFA
    and the ALO 4060 evaluation. They did statistical
    analysis to see if cadets who performed well
    throughout their four years at USAFA had received
    higher ALO ratings. Cadets who received a higher
    ALO score were less likely to be involuntarily
    discharged during their time at USAFA. The results
    reinforced the value of the 4060.
