Abstract : The Army Security Screening Questionnaire (Form 169-R) is used to screen applicants for high security jobs at the Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS). This study was a preliminary instrument in terms of: (1) the degree to which it is able to predict two operational screening decisions and a measure of behavioral reliability, and (2) the utility of using the information it provides. Empirical scoring keys demonstrated moderate validity against each of the criteria and reasonable utility. Recommendations were made to conduct further analyses on a larger sample and to develop a new prescreening instrument using the 169-R as a foundation.
