Abstract:

The Cross Assignment of Recruiting Mission CARM Test was conducted to evaluate the effects of cross assigning Active Component mission to Reserve Component recruiters. The analysis of this test compared results in district recruiting commands DRC where CARM was operative test cell with DRC that were not part of the test cell control cell. The results of this comparison showed no major differences between test and control cells except in the area of quality of Reserve recruits, where control cell DRC performed better on the average. Further analysis of the test cell DRC showed that recruiters with a cross assignment mission performed well in their own component, but did not cross recruit as well. Other factors did not appear to affect the results of the test in an unequal manner but test implementation problems caused major difficulties. The findings suggest that if these implementation problems are resolved, a permissive CARM concept--where cross assignment of mission is used on an as needed basis in order to use recruiters more efficiently--would be both feasible and cost effective.
