Using biographical information to predict success of men and women in the army

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Used personal data gathered by the Israeli Biographical Information Inventory to predict military success for 390 men and 524 women, aged 20-26. Each sex group was randomly divided into equal keying and replication samples. In the keying samples, correlations between biographical item responses and the criterion of military rank (when released from compulsory service) were examined. 13 items, scored on the basis of these correlations, were summed. These total scores were then correlated with the criterion. Significant positive correlations were found for both sex groups in both the keying and replication samples, although correlations for men were always significantly (p < .05) higher.
