Abstract:

The personnelman PN represents a major point of contact between the Navy and its enlisted men. The attitude the PN projects while performing his duties is believed to have an effect upon his serviceman-clients satisfaction with the Navy and subsequent reenlistment decision. Since all rated personnelmen must attend A school, upgrading the performance of PNs can begin at the school selection point. Experimental administration of several tests of intermediate memory ability, the Navy vocational interest inventory NVII, a peer rating, and an instructors rating, was carried out at three PN A schools. The Final School Grade FSG of each student was used as a criterion. In addition, the efficacy of the NVII for predicting the performance of rated PNs in the fleet was investigated. Author
