Evaluation of NJROTC Influence on Navy Accessions.
Operations Research, Inc., Silver Spring, MD.
The purpose of this study was to verify and explain the relationships between NJROTC experience and Navy enlistment; and to develop a plan for a more complete evaluation. Data were gathered by means of school application files, site interview questionnaires and mailback questionnaires. The major conclusion was that there is no positive relationship between NJROTC and future enlistment. A few additional tentative conclusions were drawn concerning the nature of NJROTC units and instructors in various school communities. The recommendation to carry out a longitudinal study along the same lines was made. (Appendixes contain samples of the questionnaires, file data tabulations, site listing information, and further information about variables relating to employment in the Navy and objectives of the NJROTC) (KP)
