Abstract : SUBSCREEN is a psychological screening tool used at the Naval Submarine School (NAVSUBSCOL) to assess the ability of prospective submariners to adjust to both NAVSUBSCOL and subsequent submarine service. Standardized scores are calculated for each student for each of the 27 subscales to determine how the student's scores compare to a group of a large number of previously tested NAVSUBSCOL students. An unpublished reliability analysis suggested low reliabilities of several SUBSCREEN subscales and identified the items that contributed to the low subscale reliabilities. This early work had a relatively small number of test results in the comparison group and the authors realized the need to provide a more definitive analysis of the SUBSCREEN's reliability in order to recommend changes to certain subscales and items.
