Summary

The academic and military programs of the five service academies are reviewed and found generally to produce qualified officers, but several aspects of their program could be improved. It is noted that only the Naval and Merchant Marine Academies require a comprehensive examination to evaluate students' professional competence before graduation and commissioning. These examinations should not serve as rigid formats, but as guides for the other academies in developing systems to meet their specific needs and to identify military training shortcomings. The Naval and Coast Guard Academies have recently established formal programs to assess individual and group performance after graduation; the Air Force and Military Academies lack such programs, relying principally on informal, fragmentary feedback. A formal program is suggested to give the academies better information on the competence of graduates they are producing. (Author)
