The research was concerned with the development of a leadersihip training program for potential Army noncommissioned officers. The major objective was to conduct a series of small-scale preliminary studies which would provide information and experience that would enable staff members to 1 define appropriate training program characteristics and 2 develop tools, techniques, and skills necessary for conducting subsequent field studies in connection with proposed training programs for leader preparation. In order to develop information that would be relevant in devising criteria for evaluating a leadership program, one study dealt with some aspects of the Graded Proficiency Test given at the end of Advanced Individual Training. The findings of this study are reported.
