Abstract:

A feasibility study was conducted to convert the Word Picture section of the current Officer Effectiveness Report OER into a checklist of descriptive items. A set of OERs was reviewed to select content areas. A checklist of 100 items was assembled and tried out with over 1000 raters who rated subordinate officers by both an OER and the experimental checklist. From raters evaluations and item analysis, 56 items were selected for cross validation with another 1000 raters. A high proportion of the selected items correlated positively with the OER ratings and about 60 percent of the raters favored adoption of the checklist concept. Reliability of the procedure and influence of a checklist in the official rating process were not considered in this study. Author
