An evaluation was made of the capabilities and utilization of Group 4 personnel aboard an operational Navy vessel USS CATSKILL MCS-1. Assessments were made of a Group 4 sample and a comparison non-Group 4 sample in terms of aptitudes and experiential factors, training achievement, and preliminary shipboard performance. The results indicate that the Group 4 sample had significantly less formal education, lower chronological age, and a shorter length of enlisted service, than the non-Group 4 personnel. The Group 4 sample averaged significantly lower aptitude test scores than the non-Group 4 sample. In addition, more discipline problems and lower supervisory ratings were recorded for the Group 4 sample than the non-Group 4 personnel.
