In 1975, ROTC-TRADOC requested that ARI check the validity of continued use of this conversion table for Ranger Camp cadets. Because the Army environment has changed considerably in the years since the original work was completed e.g., the all-volunteer Army, the end of the war in Vietnam, women in ROTC, the conversion tables may no longer accurately reflect the real differences between Ranger and Advanced Camp cadets. The means and standard deviations are presented of the five ratings and the total ratings of 1975 Ranger Camp cadets and the means and standard deviations of the total ratings of the 1971 Ranger and Advanced Camp cadets. The means and standard deviations of the seven CEB subtests are presented. Ranger cadets scored highest on the Combat Leadership Noncognitive CLN scale, which measures orientation and interests related to combat and outdoor and physical activities, and on the Career Intent CI scale. A complete intercorrelation matrix is presented for the PMS ratings and the CEB scores. Individual PMS ratings correlate substantially CEB subtests also correlate to the degree expected, based on previous unpublished ARI research.
