The Military Environment Inventory (MEI) provides an insightful look into the military environment and a means of pinpointing areas in need of change. It measures involvement, peer cohesion, officer support, personal status, order and organization, clarity, and officer control. As one of the Social Climate Scales, the primary uses of the Military Environment Inventory (MEI) include: describing military units; comparing the perceptions of officers, NCOs, and enlisted members; monitoring changes over time; contrasting different units; and performing other evaluations.
The MEI is available in three forms. Form R (Real) measures a individual's perception of the military environment; Form I (Ideal) measures the ideal military environment goals and values an individual holds; Form E (Expected) assesses an individual's military environment expectations. All three forms (R, I, and E) are included. Administration of a single form (R, I, or E) is counted as an administration, while administration of all three forms one time is counted as three administrations.
