Abstract : Two instruments intended to discriminate successful from unsuccessful Wave recruits and to describe the Wave recruit group were administered to nine successive companies. A sociometric questionnaire discriminated successful from unsuccessful recruits in two independent samples. It is now in use at the Naval Training Center. An opinion survey was administered to four companies for the purposes of developing a key; when the papers from five additional companies of recruits were scored with the key, no significant discrimination between criterion groups was found. Neither were relationships found between scores derived from the opinion survey and sociometric standing. (Author)
