Abstract:

A research project has concerned itself with developing a valid content analysis methodology for analyzing the narrative sections of Navy performance evaluations for senior enlisted personnel in pay grade E-7 in order to determine if it is possible to differentiate between the performance of outstanding chief petty officers and their slightly less qualified colleagues. This technical report presents the findings resulting from an attempt to cross validate and generalize the results of an earlier pilot study and to elucidate the issues of trainability and reliability.
