Abstract : The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of recruiting under the junior college graduate training program (JC) by determining whether JC men prove more valuable during first enlistment than men without prior college education. Indicators of potential value were derived from information available at beginning-of-first-enlistment. Indicators of demonstated value of performance were based on end-of-first-enlistment achievements. Using automated records of men enlisted in FY 65, value indicators of JC men were compared with those of high school graduates recruited under the high school graduate training program (HS), and with those of men recruited under the regular Navy male/regular Navy airman male recruit enlistment program (RR) with no minimum pre-enlistment educational requirement.
