Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to gather quantitative and qualitative data relating to the education of all applicants who failed the mental test for military enlistment. Under present screening procedures, results of mental testing of Navy and Air Force applicants who failed their respective mental tests are not included in the USAREC file. At present, this file is the only source for evaluating the combined moral, mental and medical fitness of applicants for enlistment. It was concluded that it was as important to know the demographic characteristics of those applicants who failed the test as to know the characteristics for those who passed the test.
