Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is the development of enlistment standards by using a multivariate model to predict SUCCESS in the Boiler Technician and Machinists Mate Non-nuclear ratings. The criterion variables utilized included number of days to E-4 and recommendation for reenlistment. Two criterion categories were established within each rating. The predictor variables included entry age, highest year of education and ten individual Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery ASVAB subtests forms 5, 6 and 7 that pertain to the time frame, September 1976 to December 1978. The model developed provided the recruiter and analytical method for screening enlistees for either rating with an associated probability for SUCCESS in the rating. Author
