Abstract:

Correlates of organizational entry performance goals the relation between organizational entry goals and recruit training performance and the relation between recruit training performance and post-recruit training goals were analyzed in a sample of over 1500 Marine Corps enlistees. It was found that expectancy of being an outstanding Marine was the best single correlate of performance goal at the beginning of recruit training organizational entry performance goal was the best single predictor of subsequent recruit training performance but accounted for only four percent of the variance in performance recruit training performance was the best single predictor of post-recruit training goals. Implications for goal theory are discussed. Author
