This research evaluates the Headquarters United States Marine Corps method of conducting analysis surveys to obtain information on perception of training effectiveness. Independent variables of rank, time in service, time in grade, time in MOS, location, and MOS held were considered to see if they have a significant effect on how a Marine perceives the effectiveness of his "formal school training before assignment to billet." Multiple regression analysis was performed with time in MOS, rank, time in grade, and time in service as independent variables. Regression data revealed that no significant relationship exists between these independent variables and the training effectiveness rating given to formal school training (R = .153, F(4, 184) = 1.09, R. > .10). Analysis of covariance revealed that location did not have a significant effect on training effectiveness rating given, F(3, 188) = .763, R. > .05, while the MOS that the Marine held did have a significant effect on the training effectiveness rating given, F(7, 187) = 4.756, R. < .001.
