A survey was made of 114 Data Systems Technicians DSs who were assigned to activities and ships in the western United States and Pacific. Most of the DSs had converted from other ratings. The data were gathered by means of records searches, written and performance tests, rating scales, and work check lists and diaries. The DSs were found to be working on a wide variety of tasks within their rating but at any one particular task only infrequently. Some areas of weakness were found in mathematics, in electronics fundamentals, and in the use of test equipment. In general, though, the DSs were performing their maintenance duties at a relatively high level of proficiency. Author
