Abstract : An investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility of providing Navy Class A Commissaryman School training for Mental Group IV personnel. The research was generally similar to a previous study at the Commissaryman School except that the AFQT score level of the Group IVs was lower in this investigation. The achievement of 14 Group IVs was compared with that of 18 regular input personnel in the same eight-week class. Research data were obtained from service records, pretraining and course achievement tests, questionnaires, and interviews with instructors. Although the Group IV personnel successfully completed the Commissaryman training, their course achievement, as measured by typical school tests, tended to be significantly less than that of the regular students in the same class. However, the achievement of the Group IV and regular students was similar when evaluated by actual job performance measures. Statistical analyses of the relationships between pretraining variables and course achievement criteria also were performed. The results are compared with those of the previous investigation at the Commissaryman School. (Author)
