This study examines the ARB decision and reporting process of the seven A Schools and the Advanced Electronics School from the Service School Command in San Diego, Ca. Three research questions are addressed: (1) Do differences exist between the schools' ARB procedures which could promote either inaccurate or decreased standardization in attrition reporting?; (2) How much agreement is there among the ARB members concerning the evaluation of student factors for a given type decision?; (3) What other information can be captured that sheds light on the attrition process? The results from the study revealed several items: (1) ARB procedures differ across schools; (2) There is moderate to high levels of agreement concerning the value certain student factors bring to the decision process; and (3) Some of the ARB members perceive that the command policy has changed from producing high quality technicians to reducing their school's attrition rates.
