Subscales used to describe item categories in the Cadet Evaluation Battery CEB, a diagnostic measure of officer potential, were derived primarily from factor analyses of responses given by male officers between 1961 and 1963. In order to determine current male and female CEB factor structures, the battery was administered to 1,035 females and 926 males applying for enrollment into the third year MS III of the Reserve Officers Training Corps ROTC program. Then separate factor analyses were conducted on the two CEB tests, the Cadet Evaluation Test CET and the Cadet Evaluation Inventory CEI, for each sex. CET male factors were found to be widely divergent from both CET female factors and the original CET subscales, while CEI male factors were found to resemble rather closely both CEI female factors and the original CEI subscales. Implications of these findings for the use and interpretation of CEB scores are discussed.
