Abstract : The report describes the operation and use of Program PROFILE, the first part of Project COMPASS, a computer assisted classification and assignment system. Program PROFILE, a FORTRAN computer program, considers test scores, procurement categories, and school requirements in determining a recruit's eligibility for the various Navy service schools. It then generates a list of these schools with appropriate accompanying information, to be made available to the interviewer to help in determining what school assignment the recruit will ultimately receive.
