Predictors of Performance in Navy Electronics Skills: The Effect of Mathematical Skills.
Baker, Meryl S.
This effort is part of a project designed to identify mathematical requirements related to Navy electronics training. The relationship between mathematics ability and electronics performance in the Navy's Basic Electricity and Electronics (BE/E), Class "A," and Class "C" schools was examined to identify the mathematics skills required to complete Navy electronics training successfully and function adequately in electronics maintenance in the fleet. School performance measures were correlated with various predictor measures, and variables were analyzed to determine how they clustered together. Results showed that skills in mathematics knowledge are strongly related to success in electronics schools. (Author)
