Abstract:

A job knowledge test was constructed using items from the Navy Correspondence course program. The test was administered to 355 Navy Service workers from the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets. The Job Knowledge Test was internally reliable and was positively related to supervisors ratings. Test performance was strongly related to paygrade, with those in the higher grades doing better. Graduates of the Basic Food Service Course A School performed better than non-graduates.
