Abstract : A technology was required to identify potential leaders from among recruits who did not have the technical knowledge required for direct entry into 'A' schools with such requirements. To potentially fulfill this need, an experimental biodata form that emphasized teenage leadership opportunities was developed and an appropriate commercially available personality measure was identified. A major consideration during the above work was to ensure that such technology provided an equal opportunity for selection into the program regardless of race. It is recommended that the two instruments described herein be submitted to a validation process so that their ability to distinguish potential leaders from non-leaders is appropriately evaluated prior to any implementation.
