Abstract:

The assessment data accumulated during 1956-1957 were examined for evidence of the efficiency of the various selection measures to identify potential Submarine School failures. The results show the probability that a volunteer will graduate from Submarine School is 3-4 times greater if he has a combined Ari-Mech score of 100 or more than if he has a score less than 100. A similar margin in probability exists for high GCT scores and low Personal Inventory Barometer PIB scores. However, for those volunteers with low Ari-Mech scores, the odds to graduate are greatly increased if they 1 have completed 12 years or more of formal education 2 have a PIB score in the satisfactory range or 3 have a high GCT. An examination of the Ari-Mech scores of 3527 volunteers suggested that a cut-off of Ari-Mech of approximately 100 is still an optimum selection criterion. Author
