Abstract : An historical study of officer input from the various Air Force commissioning programs was initiated in 1963. The study was designed to determine the predictability of an Air Force officer's career decision and to evaluate relationships between career intent and demographic, environmental, and attitudinal factors. Career-intention information for this group was compiled for the period prior to commissioning up to five years of active duty. The report presents a description of the career-intent statement reliability and validity with career status as of December 1969. Subjects entering the Air Force through the Officer Training School--Airmen Education and Commissioning Program and Officer Candidate School had the highest percentage of officers remaining on active duty. Correlations between precommission career intent and the criterion were generally low; however, there was a consistent increase in predictability for data from succeeding years. (Author)
