Abstract : The report describes the results of the third in 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 36 men and one WAVE who comprised the second ADCOP graduating class. Questions on this survey dealt with service and personal background, career motivation, and opinions of ADCOP. Space for general comment about the program was provided. Findings show that the majority of the graduates are in pay grades E-6 and E-7. They have at least 10 years AFMS, plan to remain on active duty until eligible for retirement, and hope to attain at least a bachelor's degree. Most of the graduates were satisfied with the quality of instruction they received and felt prepared to handle the course work. The students generally praised the program highly. (Author)
