This report describes the development of a new screening tool for identifying Sailors with high potential for success in recruiting duty. In the first phase of the research effort, a predictive validation study was conducted with students at the Recruiting and Retention School in Pensacola, FL. the students were administered a trial predictor battery while at the school, and performance ratings and production data were collected after participants had been assigned to recruiting duty. In the second phase, the trial battery was revised based on the results of the predictive study, and validated against performance ratings and production of experienced field recruiters. Suggestions were made regarding a final scoring key and how the test battery might be used to select Navy personnel for recruiting duty and possibly other special assignment ratings.
