The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between training and job performance and 30 independent variables which were assumed to be related to success or failure of 67 adult males enrolled in vocational programs. Psychological, sociological, educational, employment, and economic measures were utilized to collect data on these participants during Manpower Development and Training Programs and in the followup portion of the study. The measures which were significant (.05 level) for successful training performance were (1) Work Interest Flexibility, (2) Intuitive Mechanics, (3) Revised Beta Examination, and (4) environmental adjustment and overall adjustment on the Emo Questionnaire. Course performance, personal characteristics, and peer evaluations were all significant (.05 level) indicators of satisfactory job performance. (EM)
