Abstract:

An experimental forced-choice scale was constructed for the purpose of predicting voluntary attritions from the Naval Air Training Program and was tested on a sample of entering students. The scale score had a higher relationship to this type of attrition than did the scores of any of the current selection instruments. A combination of scale scores yielded a bi-serial correlation of 0.52 against a completion-voluntary attrition criterion. Auth r
