Abstract : This study sought to determine the extent of the Navy's problem with recruits who have deficiencies in the verbal English comprehension skills necessary to complete recruit training. English language comprehension skills, particularly verbal comprehension, of a cross-section of new recruits at each of the three RTCs -- Orlando, Great Lakes, and San Diego -- were assessed. In addition, relevant biographical information was gathered and used to identify the type of recruit likely to have deficiencies in verbal English comprehension. The variables considered included race and/or ethnic background, educational background, place of birth, and first language.
