Abstract : The Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) is a federally mandated program which is jointly sponsored by the Navy and secondary school system. The NJROTC program was established by Public Law 88-647 on 13 October 1964 and may be found in Title 10, U.S. Code, Chapter 102. In accordance with the provisions of the law, the program is operated under guidance of the Secretary of the Navy. In view of the current emphasis on cost effectiveness and shrinking resources the benefits of the program need to be identified and documented. Consequently, CNET tasked the Naval Training Systems Center (NAVTRASYSCEN) to conduct an evaluation of the benefits of the NJROTC to the Navy, the secondary school system, and the students. The study was conducted in five phases. During Phase 1 the survey instruments were developed. A total of three instruments were developed: one for the school, the instructors, and the cadets. In Phase 2 a draft of each Naval Science instructors. This information assisted in improving the design of the surveys and their administration procedures. To ensure that the NJROTC Cadet Survey was comprehensible to its intended population (NLJROTC cadets in grades 9 through 12), a pilot of the questionnaire was conducted. Phase 3 consisted of identifying the population for the Host School Survey and Cadet Evaluation Form and conducting the survey. In Phase 4 the sample population was identified for NJROTC Cadet survey. During Phase 5 the survey was conducted.
