Comparative Performance of Low-Ability Airmen.
Grunzke, Marvin E.; And Others
The military accessions program "Project 100,000," established in 1966, has as one of its goals the yearly enlistment of a minimum of 100,000 men who have previously been declared ineligible for military service because of failure to meet required mental or physical standards. This study was done to evaluate the progress of those marginal ability personnel who enlisted in the United States Air Force. Data were collected on their performance in training and during assignment to jobs throughout the Air Force. Analysis revealed that their job performance and adaptability to the Air Force were lower than for control subjects. (Six references and 28 tables and figures are included.) (Author/LY)
