Abstract : The unit proficiency scores obtained during Missile Annual Service Practice firings during 1958 were analyzed. The objectives of the analyses were to identify the major factors affecting unit proficiency scores and to identify systematic sources of variance in the scores obtained. The analyses indicated (a) essentially no correlation existed between the Crew Performance and Firing Result Scores obtained, (b) differences in the total ASP Scores were primarily dependent upon differences in Firing Result Scores, and (c) differences in Firing Result Scores obtained were distributed in accordance with a random model.
