Abstract
This thesis was written to synthesize some of the previous work concerning the educational attainment and mental level of enlistees. It addressed quality projections of the future pool of recruits, the Academic Remedial Training (ART) program, the Job Oriented Basic Skills program, reading grade levels of recruits and rate training manuals, and results of interviews conducted with persons who have dealt with personnel quality issues. The main thrust of this thesis centers around an examination of the present unofficial definition of quality in the Navy (educational attainment and mental ability) and illustrates the need for an expanded definition of quality that would enable the selection criteria for enlistment to be more predictive of future behavior.
