The Multiple Affect Adjective Check List, a measure of morale, was administered to trainees in two Basic Combat Training companies -- once before training and at one-week intervals during training. The men in one company were trained using the Merit Reward System as a source of incentives, while the men in the other company were trained using the Armys normal incentive system. A comparison of the scores obtained from the two companies suggest that the Merit Reward system may prevent morale deterioration in Basic Combat Training.
