Abstract:

The training productivity of Navy schools depends on levels of student attrition, training time, and student achievement in terms of test scores. Navy training administrators need a method for assessing training productivity that accounts for changes in these three criteria. Mathematical formulas for combining values of these criteria into a single overall index of achieved training productivity were developed. These formulas for combining values of these criteria into a single overall index of achieved training productivity were developed. These formulas were applied to demonstrate how training productivity may be assessed and compared for different schools or time periods. It was concluded that this index of achieved productivity is an effective device for monitoring the training productivity of Navy technical schools.
