Officers were rated by the immediate supervisor, another superior officer who knew the rated officers performance, and two associates four complete ratings were available for 771 Infantry Branch and 102 Quartermaster Branch officers. The matrices of correlations among the dimensions of the Performance Evaluation Form were factor-analyzed for each type of rater in the two career branches.
