Abstract:

The Study Group on Advancement, meeting in the Bureau of Naval Personnel in early 1966, recommended that a study be made of possible ways and means of rank ordering the qualifications for advancement. Such procedures would in turn allow the forwarding of valuable occupational information on frequency of use, time spent performing, and criticality of qualifications for advancement to examination item writers, correspondence course writers, and training publications writers. The major conclusions of this report are 1 The rating scale job inventory is the most economical method to acquire information concerning the relative importance of advancement qualifications. 2 A rating scale to measure both criteria of importance and frequency of use should meet the immediate needs of the consumers as indicated by the Study Group on Advancement.
