The Recruiter Assessment Battery (RAB) is a predictive test being developed by Navy Personnel Research Studies and Technology (NPRST) to aid in the selection of U.S. Navy recruiters. This thesis analyzes the predictive accuracy of the RAB. Data were gathered from Commander, Navy Recruiting Command (CNRC) and the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) for a sample of recruiters on duty in 2003. Data on the recruiters' RAB score, monthly production, and Naval Recruiting District (NRD) characteristics were obtained from Commander, Navy Recruiting Command (CNRC). Demographic information on the recruiters was obtained from DMDC. Multivariate models were estimated to determine the effects of the RAB score on the average monthly production of recruiters. The results of the models showed that the RAB score is positively correlated with recruiter productivity. The models also indicated that neither NRD characteristics nor personal demographic characteristics affected the relationship between the RAB score and recruiter production. The results of the study suggest that the RAB can be used to predict recruiter productivity. Further research should be conducted on implementing the RAB in the recruiter selection process. Additionally, the relationship of RAB score to recruiter productivity and personal demographic characteristics should be investigated more extensively.
