Needs and Uses: The U. S. Navy Judge Advocate General requires a method to improve recruiting and accession board processes in order to recruit and select the best individuals as judge advocates. A survey will allow the JAG Corps to assess whether certain traits and/or behaviors are indicators of future success in the JAG Corps. If the survey is found to be predictive, it will be a reliable, valid, and fair tool to be used in recruiting and selection decisions. Affected Public: Individuals applying to be judge advocates in the U. S. Navy JAG Corps. Annual Burden Hours: 200. Number of Respondents: approximately 800. Responses Per Respondent: 1. Average Burden Per Response: 15 minutes. Frequency: Survey will be available to individuals who submit an application throughout the year. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES Summary of Information Collection There are three main facets of a JAG Corps applicant: objective measures such as Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score and grade point average; subjective measures such as personality traits and values; and performance in a structured interview. All three facets must be considered to have a thorough assessment of each applicant. Currently no databases or surveys exist that can provide information on the subjective measures. Routinely administered surveys are the most accurate and costeffective means for determining personality and value indicators of JAG Corps applicants. As survey responses are collected and work performances assessed, correlations will be analyzed. If survey responses are proven to be predictive of future success in the JAG Corps, the survey will become a mandatory part of the application and will be scored and considered by the accession board along with the objective measures and interview results.
