Abstract : From 1990-1995, the U.S. Army Research institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences administered an experimental exit survey to separating soldiers. This instrument was known as the Army Career Transitions Survey (ACTS). The ACTS was designed for use among separating Active Duty Army personnel to measure: (1) satisfaction levels, (2) perceptions of Army leadership, (3) advice for potential recruits, and the (4) reasons for leaving the Army. The Human Resources Research Organization was awarded a contract to develop standardized administration procedures and to review and revise the items on the ACTS. To meet the goals of this research, the approach primarily involved: (1) gathering information through semistructured interviews with pertinent commands and transition site personnel; (2) reviewing the literature on leadership; (3) pilot testing the revised survey instrument; and (4) analyzing the results. Each of these efforts is addressed individually in this report.
