Abstract:

Due to the Navys increasing needs for high quality officers with technical training, the NROTC program must increase the number of midshipmen selecting engineering or science E-S majors.s In an attempt to meet this goal, students entering the program in 1970 and 1971 were used to develop and validate an interest scale, based on responses to the Strong Vocational Interest Blank, for predicting choice of major. Validation results indicated that the scale was effective in predicting choice of major and was stable over time. Further, midshipmen scoring high on the scale were no more likely to disenroll than those scoring lower. Thus, it was highly recommended for use in selecting NROTC midshipmen with E-S majors. Author
