Abstract:

This report contains the results of a policy capturing study which convened two experimental promotion boards to develop the weighting systems for a proposed senior noncommissioned officer NCO promotion system. The proposed promotion system combines the board score derived from the current E-8E-9 selection board method with the score on a proposed weighted factors composite to arrive at a senior NCOs total promotion score. The development of two weighting systems is presented. First, the weights for the promotion factors comprising the weighted factors component of the proposed system are developed on the basis of a consensus policy from the first experimental board which placed moderate emphasis on all the promotion factors. Next, the weighting scheme for combining the weighted factors and board score components into a total promotion score is identified from a censensus policy of the second experimental board which placed substantial weight on the board score component. The report includes a description of the experimental promotion boards, the senior NCO sample, the promotion system factors and components, and the experimental procedures. Also included are descriptions of the analyses performed, along with a discussion of the results and recommendations for the senior NCO promotion system weights. Author
