Abstract:

Each year, thousands of enlisted recruits enter the Navy and, with little or no Navy experience, must indicate the ratings they would like to pursue for most of their military careers. The Navy Vocational Interest Inventory NVII was constructed to help these recruits determine the ratings which correspond most closely with their vocational preferences and in which they would probably be most satisfied. The present report describes the development of 15 occupational scales for the NVII which yield scores based upon a modification of the point-biserial correlation and reflect the extent to which an individuals interests resemble the interests of satisfied men in 15 different Navy ratings.
