Abstract
This thesis investigates and evaluates the effect of lowered Basic Test Battery (BTB) selection scores on rephasals and disenrollments at selected Coast Guard Class A schools. It analyzes the differences in rephasal rate and disenrollment rate for Storekeeper, Subsistence Specialist, and Radioman Schools for the year prior to (FY 1976) and the year after (FY 1977) the lowering of the BTB selection scores (which occurred in July, 1976) . It compares the performance of students entering these schools with the lower BTB scores with those students entering with the higher BTB scores during FY 1977. In addition, it analyzes the relationship "between the successful completion of these schools and the BTB selection scores. The results indicate that students with BTB scores lower than the earlier (higher) cutoff tend to have higher rephasal and disenrollment rates than students with the higher BTB scores. If the input percentage of the lower-scoring students should increase, there is likely to be a significant increase in both the rephasal and disenrollment rates for all three schools.
