Abstract:

WE PROPOSE TO EXAMINE WHETHER MOTIVATIONAL TEST BATTERIES BASED ON CURRENT THEORIES OF HUMAN MOTIVATION AND STATE-OF-THE-ART ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGIES CAN BE GENERATED FOR PREDICTIONS OF DECISIONS TO (A) JOIN/REENLIST IN THE ARMY; (B) ENROLL/CONTINUE IN ROTC; (C) BE A CAREER ARMY OFFICER. IF VARIABLES ASSESSED IN THE MOTIVATIONAL TEST BATTERIES ADD UNIQUE VARIANCE IN RELATION TO CONVENTIONALLY USED ABILITY, BIOGRAPHICAL OR PERSONALITY PAPER-AND-PENCIL TESTS, THEN SCORES ON MEASURES OF THESE VARIABLES COULD BE INCORPORATED INTO A MULTIPLE PREDICTION EQUATION FOR PREDICTING ARMY EMPLOYMENT DECISION MAKING. IN PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH, THE OBJECTIVES ARE TO (1) REVIEW AND SYNTHESIZE ON LITERATURE RELEVANT TO MOTIVATION THEORY AND EMPLOYMENT DECISIONS; (2) DEVELOP CONTROLLED INTERVIEWS FOR DETERMINING AND VALIDATING MOTIVATIONAL VARIABLES RELATED TO DECISIONS FOR ARMY EMPLOYMENT; (3) SYNTHESIZE LITERATURE WITH CONTROLLED INTERVIEWS TO FORM A MULTIDIMENSIONAL MODEL OF EMPLOYMENT DECISION MAKING; (4) DEVELOP THEMATIC MOTIVATIONAL TEST BATTERIES; (5) GENERATE AN EXPERIMENTAL PLAN FOR PHASE II WHERE THE TEST BATTERIES WILL BE ADMINISTERED TO INDIVIDUALS AT VARIOUS STAGES OF DECISION MAKING.
