Abstract:

This is a report on the contributions 1 of current OC selection measures to the prediction of OCS success and subsequent duty performance, and 2 of OCS grades to the prediction of subsequent duty performance. Validity data were obtained on OCS Classes 34 and 35. One year after graduation, evaluations of duty performance were obtained, using Fitness Reports and the Junior Officer Activity Checklists. The OC selection variables did not predict on-thejob success as measured by the Fitness Reports or the JOAC scores in the year after graduation. Furthermore, none of the OCS academic course grades contributed to the prediction of subsequent duty performance. However, Military Aptitude ratings did predict duty performance of officers in sea billets. Thus, authoritative judgment should be expressed in determining whether proportionately greater weight ought to be given to Military Aptitude, as compared to academic subjects, in determining final class standing.
