Abstract:

Experimental autobiographical questionnaires, including items validated in previous research and new items suggested by that research, were administered to samples of incoming Army enlistees at Forts Dix and Sill. Data on 180-day attrition were collected. Questionnaire results were item analyzed using attrition criterion, and cross-validities were computed for all items. Results substantially confirmed the earlier research outcomes and indicated that autobiographical information could assist in identifying enlistees most likely to experience early attrition.
