The Army Security Screening Questionnaire Form 169-R is used to screen applicants for high security jobs at the Military Entrance Processing Stations MEPS. This study was a preliminary instrument in terms of 1 the degree to which it is able to predict two operational screening decisions and a measure of behavioral reliability, and 2 the utility of using the information it provides. Empirical scoring keys demonstrated moderate validity against each of the criteria and reasonable utility. Recommendations were made to conduct further analyses on a larger sample and to develop a new prescreening instrument using the 169-R as a foundation.
