Abstract : Development and demonstration was attempted of an empirically rooted method, based on a sound measurement foundation, for providing feedback on the technical proficiency of Navy electronic maintenance personnel. The method relied largely on a personnel reliability index, modeled after an equipment reliability index. Specifically, the personnel reliability index is based on the compounding of probability of successful performance values for each of eight factorial derived electronic job dimensions. A second instrument, based on a Guttman scaled check list and which yields an absolute measure of performance was also administered and comparisons of the findings which resulted from the application of the two instruments are presented.
