Title: Factors Related To The Failure Of Enlisted Submarine School Graduates To Qualify.
Author: Weybrew, BB; Noddin, E
Abstract: Enlisted submarine school graduates who failed to qualify were compared to graduates who had qualified with respect to basic test battery scores, grades in submarine school, scores on two paper-and-pencil tests of motivation and emotionality, and selected items of background information. Enlisted submarine school graduates who fail to qualify as compared to those who qualify are characterized as follows: (1) earn lower scores in an arithmetical aptitude test; (2) achieve lower grades in submarine school; (3) have higher probability not to have finished high school; (4) are slightly older at the time of entering submarine school; (5) are more likely to have been married; and (6) if an 'A' school graduate, the odds are in favor of his having one or more duty assignments intervening 'A' school and the onset of submarine school. Considering the population sample as a whole, neither the PIB (Personal Inventory Barometer) nor the SMQ (Self-reported Motivation Questionnaire) was related to disqualification. However, with education as a moderator variable, the PIB scores were significantly related to disqualification thus attesting to the complexity of the etiology of enlisted submarine disqualification.
