UNITED STATES ARMY CENTER FOR INITIAL MILITARY TRAINING FORT EUSTIS VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this effort was to develop a standardized measure of Army Values inculcation in new Soldiers. The product is a peer evaluation form comprised of seven separate behaviorally anchored rating scales one for each Value. This measure will enable Army leadership to take snapshots of individual IMT units values assimilation levels, to compare values assimilation levels over time or between units, and to evaluate the efficacy of competing Values training approaches. As an operational measure, the instrument could be used to identify deficiencies in values training while Soldiers are still in IMT, and while remediation is still possible.
