Two questions of interest to the staff of the Air Force Squadron Officer School were investigated. The first question asked whether attendance at Squadron Officer School resulted in an increase in officer effectiveness, and the second asked whether those officers who achieved the higher grades in Squadron Officer School were more effective in their subsequent career than officers achieving lower grades. The criteria of effectiveness were Officer Effectiveness Re ports OERs completed on each officer in the 2 years immediately following Squadron Officer School. Results of a series of multiple regression analyses indicated that, when other factors associated with OERs were taken into consideration, no differences were found which could be attributed to either attendance or nonattendance at Squadron Officer School, nor to performance during Squadron Officer School. An appendix presents a nontechnical discussion of the method of multiple linear regression.
