Abstract : In order to determine the amount of basic military knowledge possessed by various categories of enlisted men active in the Army Reserve in 1954, the Basic Military Proficiency Test was administered to 2840 reservists in six U.S.A.R. Divisions. The scores were analyzed in terms of six selected military career background factors. The results provide the Army with quantitative estimates of the level of basic military knowledge possessed by men of varying military experience who were active in the Army Reserve Program.
