The general subject of personnel appraisal systems is reviewed as a basis for the development of the general form of an Officer Evaluation System. In this development, unique aspects of the military environment are identified, a clear statement of purpose is chosen, and the distinction between performance evaluation assessment of past performance and potential evaluation assessment of future performance is drawn. Six criteria for a military Officer Evaluation System are proposed Clear purpose, valid rating factors, equally fair, simple, provisions for errors and inflation, and consistent with prevailing management philosophy. The proposed system collects three types of information--experience, performance evaluations, and potential evaluations--for input to two necessary organizational processes--personnel movements and superior-subordinate communication. Inflation control mechanisms are recommended only for evaluations of potential.
