By Richard N. Dreese and William M. Russell


Approved for public release; distribution is unlimitedCertain aptitude and personality tests were given to the 1964 Management Curriculum military officers of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and the scores were correlated with the academic grades received during the first three terms. The results obtained confirm that the Graduate Record Examination is an excellent predictor of academic performance and indicate that neither the Structured Objective Rorschach Test or Allport-Vernon-Lindzey study of Values are useful predictors of academic performance in the Management Curriculum. It is recommended that the Graduate Record Examination by administered to candidates for the Management Curriculum and that Selection Boards be advised of the results to assist in student selection for future classes.
