Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to discover if the Navys system of assigning personnel to the Aviation antisubmarine Warfare Technician AX and the Aviation Antisubmarine Warfare Operator AW ratings can be improved. A multivariable model is developed using success and failure as criterion variables. Biographical and aptitude data available at the time of enlistment are used as predictor variables. Two independent models were created using data available on personnel entering the Navy in 1976, 1977 and 1978. The models were then validated on a new sample. These models predict the future fleet performance of AX and AW personnel as measured by length of service, paygrade achieved, and recommendation for reenlistment. Other results and recommendations regarding implementation and future research are discussed. Author
