Abstract:

A method of classifying Navy ratings on the basis of variables that are most likely to predict job performance is developed and applied. Four methods were used to obtain information about the predictive validity of cognitive ability, psychomotor and information processing, training, and experience measure in 18 Navy ratings. Based on expert judgment data, a predictor-based taxonomy was formed that classified ratings into three groups, one that emphasizes cognitive ability, one that emphasizes practical abilities, and one that emphasizes training and experience. Keywords Taxonomy, Job performance, Prediction, Predictive validity.
