Abstract : A follow-up performance evaluation was conducted on a sample of Group 4 personnel who had served 14 months aboard the mine countermeasures support ship USS CATSKILL (MCS-1). Shipboard assessments were made of the Group 4 sample and the non-Group 4 comparison sample in terms of performance test proficiency, supervisors' ratings, and other variables including rate of advancement, and disciplinary records. Results from the actual performance tests indicated no significant difference between samples in test task proficiency. The Group 4 men did score lower on a written General Navy Knowledge Test and were rated lower than the non-Group 4 personnel on two different supervisors' rating scales. The Group 4 personnel experienced more disciplinary actions, completed fewer training courses, and advanced in pay grade at a slower rate than did the non-Group 4 men. (author)
