Abstract:

This study examines the ARB decision and reporting process of the seven A Schools and the Advanced Electronics School from the Service School Command in San Diego, Ca. Three research questions are addressed 1 Do differences exist between the schools ARB procedures which could promote either inaccurate or decreased standardization in attrition reporting 2 How much agreement is there among the ARB members concerning the evaluation of student factors for a given type decision 3 What other information can be captured that sheds light on the attrition process The results from the study revealed several items 1 ARB procedures differ across schools 2 There is moderate to high levels of agreement concerning the value certain student factors bring to the decision process and 3 Some of the ARB members perceive that the command policy has changed from producing high quality technicians to reducing their schools attrition rates.
