Preliminary Results on the Evaluation of a Fleet Post-Training Performance Evaluation Technique.
Rafacz, Bernard A.; Foley, Paul P.
A study was conducted by the Navy to develop and evaluate human performance reliability estimates for electronic maintenance. Data were collected using the Personnel Identification Information Forms, the Technical Proficiency Checkout Form, and the Job Performance Questionnaire. On the basis of the total number of uncommonly effective and the total number of uncommonly ineffective incidents of performance recorded on the JPQ, four performance estimators were developed--series reliability estimate (SRE), series-parallel reliability estimate (PRE), geometric mean reliability estimate (GRE), and weighted-average reliability estimate (WRE). Relevant findings resulted mainly from an analysis of the distributional properties of the predictor and criterion variables. Only the predictor variable WRE could be termed normally distributed; the SRE, PRE. and GRE were extremely skewed. (KM)
