Abstract : A supervisor rating on overall adjustment and peer group nominations for routine work assignments and a hypothetical combat situation were obtained on 101 male enlisted Marines who had completed two years of military service. In studying the dimensions of such evaluations, the supervisor rating appeared to reflect primarily the individual's technical competence on the job whereas the peer nominations tended to predominantly reflect the individual's technical competence on the job whereas the peer nominations tended to predominantly reflect the individual's conduct or capacity for adhering to the organization's rules and regulations. The results are relevant to the problem of developing on-the-job performance measures through use of supervisor and peer group judgments. (Author)
