Abstract : The fleet performance of a small group of Project 100,000 (low aptitude) personnel was assessed by means of an evaluation form completed by their supervisors after the men had been on board for approximately seven months. The men previously had been trained for the Navy rating, Aviation Structural Mechanic S (Structures), AMS. The performance of non-Project 100,000 personnel working in the AMS rating, who had been attached to the same squadrons for a comparable period of time, also was assessed for purposes of comparison. Statistically significant differences between the two groups were not found, although all measures showed a small difference favoring the non-Project 100,000 group. The performance of Project 100,000 personnel in the AMS rating ranged from above average to unsatisfactory. On the whole, the study suggests that the use of Project 100,000 personnel in the AMS rating is not in the best interest of the Navy, unless dictated by a manpower shortage or other non-military considerations.
