Abstract : This report describes the results of the second of a series of studies which are being conducted to aid in evaluating the career motivation value of the Associate Degree Completion Program (ADCOP) for career enlisted personnel. Survey questionnaires were mailed to the 42 men who were the first graduating participants of ADCOP. Questions on this survey dealt with background information, career motivation, education, and expectations concerning ADCOP. Space for general comment was provided. Findings show that the majority of the men are educationally oriented as evidenced by both past performance and future educational aspirations. They are career-motivated and have high rank aspirations with most of them hoping to attain commissioned or warrant status. The majority think that completion of ADCOP will have an advantageous effect on their ability to do a better job in their rating and on their promotions. Most of the graduates were very well satisfied with their schools and the quality of instruction they received. Comments from the men generally praised the program highly. (Author)
