Abstract:

To increase the amount of information that can be used in determining desirable job requirements and in evaluating officer performance, two sources were examined for pertinent and scalable variables. From personnel records of officers in the Communications Specialty and the Research Development career area, 76 variables were identified and scaled. By developing a method for content analysis, information from the Word Picture section of the Officer Effectiveness Reports for the same officers was quantified on 89 scales. Individual data records, score distributions, and intercorrelations of 165 variables for the two samples are available for use in developing qualifications and criteria for jobs in these areas.
