Abstract:

The objectives of the study were to examine the current reenlistment process, evaluate the post-reenlistment predictive validity of current reenlistment and several new reenlistment standards, and determine the impact of any new standards on the selection of subsequent reenlistees. The study was restricted to the use of data already available on the EMTR or in personnel files. Results showed new standards as somewhat better predictors of post-reenlistment PMOS scores than current standards for both first-term and career reenlistees. However, the amount of explained variance was not large due, at least partially, to severe data problems and pre-selection of subjects from among only those who had already been allowed to reenlist and prediction of failure for a later reenlistee sample was marginal. Future research directions are suggested. Author
