A STUDY TO DEVELOP AN IMPROVED ENLISTED PERFORMANCE EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR THE U. S. COAST GUARD

A worker-oriented job element inventory was developed and administered to a random sample of 3,000 Coast Guard enlisted personnel from nine different rates and 28 different job ratings. The survey responses were analyzed by Tucker's Three Mode Factor Analysis in order to determine effectively how many different performance appraisal forms should be developed for Coast Guard use. Seven prototype evaluation forms were developed from the job inventory data and introduced in technical conferences with samples of personnel from the various rate and rating groups. Data gathered in these conferences were used to develop the final evaluation instruments. A feedback system was proposed, and an experimental design for testing the effectiveness of the new forms was also developed. (Author)
