The men in the three samples were each eligible for assignment to at least one Class A school on the basis of prerequisite BTB scores, and the three samples were matched on general ability GCTARIMECH. Comparisons were made as of 30 June 1964--two to two and one-half years after initial enlistment--on 1 Rates of initial assignments to six broad categories of Class A schools and no A school, 2 rates of initial assignments, among those assigned to Class A schools, to the aforementioned six categories of schools, 3 rate of enlistment extensions for Class A school assignment, 4 rate of reenlistment for assignment to the STAR Program, and 5 rate of advancement in pay grade.
