Abstract:

Recent studies completed at the U.S. Army Retraining Brigade, a seven-week program for Army prisoners, at Fort Riley, Kansas, have provided comprehensive personality profiles of the Armys prisoner population. The purpose of the present study is to determine the extent to which personality measures, employed as independent variables, can predict graduation from the Retraining Brigade and the quality of performance during subsequent assignments. A parallel purpose of the study is to determine whether military and personal history data, available from conventional military records, offer a pool of potentially superior predictor variables.
