A self-paced leadership training program, LEADER MATCH IV, was tested in the ROTC Advanced Summer Camp for cadets at the end of their junior year of college. Of 18 schools with ROTC programs, nine were randomly selected for the control condition. In the other nine schools ROTC cadets were instructed to read the LEADER MATCH manuals carefully. At camp all cadets were assigned at random to platoons, and each held four or five different leadership positions for one day each. Leadership performance was evaluated by trained officer and NCO advisors as well as by peer ratings. Male and female cadets in the LEADER MATCH program performed significantly better on all leadership measures but no better on other performance measures than cadets in the control condition.
