Abstract:

The report describes the origin and development of a data base for possible use in increasing the effectiveness of officer procurement for the School of Military Sciences, Officer training program. Distributions are included to illustrate the type and magnitude of differences existing between the various colleges and universities attended by entrants into SMS-O training. The relationships between officer effectiveness criteria and the characteristics of the colleges and universities from which the junior officer graduated were analyzed. Results of the analyses indicate that criterion differences found are due to some extent to the differences in the characteristics of the academic instituions student bodies. It is concluded that these data could be used effectively in SMS-O officer recruitment, and a combination of these data with similar data on current AFROTC detachments could be used to form the basis of a flexible, cost-effective procurement program.
