Survey of Unit Performance Effectiveness Measures.
Larson, Orvin A.; And Others
Improved measures of performance effectiveness are required by the Marine Corps for its combat unit training program in order to ensure the maintenance of appropriate levels of unit readiness in accordance with its assigned mission. A survey to determine the state-of-the-art of performance assessment systems and methodologies was conducted as an initial research phase in support of this requirement. A two-fold effort was made to review the research literature in performance evaluation, decision making, and unit training, and to gather first-hand information about existing performance assessment systems. A broad informational survey provides a number of alternative theoretical and practical methodologies which may serve as feasible approaches in ensuing research. The final 20 pages of the report are devoted to an annotated bibliography. (NTIS/AG)
