Career Potential of Enrollees in PLC, ROC and AVROC: A Comparison of Surveys Conducted in May 1972 and May 1973.
Fisher, Allan H., Jr.; Rigg, Leslie S.
The consulting report indicates the extent of career motivation among current enrollees in selected off-campus military officer training programs in 1973. The programs studied are the Navy Reserve Officers Candidate (ROC) program, Aviation Reserve Officers Candidate (AVROC) program, and the Marine Corps Platoon Leaders Class (PLC) program. The third in a series, the report presents the results of a comprehensive 1973 Department of Defense survey of enrollment (applicant) potential for college-based military officer training programs. Analysis of the data indicated that most enrollees intended to stay in their programs, and that 30 to 40 percent intended to pursue a military career, while about 50 percent were undecided. Knowledge of financial benefits did not influence career intentions. An appendix offers: a detailed sample size information sheet for off-campus program enrollees, comparability of 1972 and 1973 samples, the 1973 questionnaire, and approximate tests of statistical significance.
