Abstract:

The US Army has been seeking to train its units to the highest level of operational proficiency and standardized on that level. The paper examines the standardization of training using a statistical analysis of physical fitness test scores for five basic combat training companies. The multiple t Test and Snedicors Analysis of Variance techniques were used. The results showed a significant difference at both the .05 and .01 levels thus indicating that training within the Army is not standard. Modified author abstract
