Abstract:

This thesis utilized longitudinal and performance appraisal information on 182 naval telecommunications personnel from two Naval Communication Stations and an Attack Carrier to develop a career development model and high performance characteristics. High correlation between age and paygrade, mean time between advancements, and years since last advancement and weak correlation between age and job index, and evaluation scores were noted. When scored on an all or nothing basis the 31-36 year age-group received a significantly higher mean score on the evaluation questionnaire than the 37-42 year age-group. This may be interpreted as early low performance among the personnel sampled for this study. Author
