Abstract:

This research analyzes how student trainees in the entry-level Morse code operator course perceive and utilize their time in a typical 24-hour period. The objective was to determine the relationship, if any, between student time expenditures in various activities, and academic performance. Also of interest were inter-service and training shift differences in time expenditures, and whether time satisfaction was critical to performance. Findings indicated that, although certain variations exist among services and shifts, these do not relate to academic attrition. Also, findings indicate that those groups who are most satisfied with their time often experience high attrition. RH
