An Evaluation of Methods for Predicting Job Performance of Personnelmen.
Thomas, Patricia J.
The Personnelman (PN) Rating was the subject of a recent study in which selection test scores were found to correlate satisfactorily with school grades. The purpose of this followup study was to determine whether correlations exist between selection test scores and job performance measures, and whether the experimental tests taken by PN students in school are related to performance in the PN Rating. Performance evaluations were obtained for PNs, six months after graduation, from the report of enlisted performance evaluation and from an experimental Personnelman Supervisor's Questionnaire. Basic test battery scores, experimental test data, and school grades were validated against these criteria. Comparisons were made among four samples of graduates and between fleet and recruit input to the schools. Peer rating, instructor's ratings, and final school grades (FSG) were related to job performance. (Author)
