Abstract:

A sample of enlistees who entered the naval service and graduated from recruit training were divided into two groups -- those assigned to medical specialties and those assigned to other occupational ratings. The two groups were compared on the basis of biographical data, cognitive test scores, rate of effectiveness, and rate of reenlistment. Formulae were derived for predicting effectiveness for all enlistees and for the medical specialists along. These formulae were compared in order to ascertain whether assignment as a medical specialist might have a moderating effect upon the predictive validities obtained.
