Abstract:

The purpose of the investigation was to analyze the ability of a combination of physical measures, psychological measures and demographic information to predict separation from the army over the period of time defined as entry level status. A secondary purpose was to analyze the relationship of the variables with the type of separation. It is important to attempt to identify the causes of recruit attrition during training so that procedures for decreasing this attrition can be developed and implemented. In view of the finding and conclusion presented, recommendations were made. The recommendations stated that the psychological constructs used should be considered for inclusion in the new tests for the prediction of attrition and further study
