Abstract:

The Basic Education Project attempted to evaluate, experimentally, the effectiveness of special training prior to Basic Training when the content of the special training curriculum was varied. Conclusions of the study were a Pre-Basic Training in which half the time was spent on military subjects and half on academic subjects seemed to have very little effect on the military proficiency of the semi-literate men who were eligible for it b regardless of age, region of origin, initial educational level, or initial attitudes, men who had had the special training were not appreciably more proficient than men who had not.
