Abstract:

Officers in attendance at branch basic courses completed a 27-item attitude questionnaire following completion of associate ratings. This survey, the Associate Rating Questionnaire ARQ, tapped the individuals perceptions regarding the value and usefulness of associate ratings as a personnel technique used to assess leadership potential of peers. Acceptability of associate ratings generally was low it was higher among branches with greater familiarity with associate ratings. Usefulness was perceived to be greatest when pertaining to self-improvement.
