Abstract : The Enlisted Performance Evaluation System is important to individual personnel actions such as advancement, job assignment and retention. It is thus essential that any possible sources of error in marking practices be removed or reduced. When performance marks vary as a function of such 'situational factors' as type of command or time on job, the variation may reflect either true performance differences or error from differences in marking standards. The purpose of the study was to investigate the magnitude of certain situational differences in enlisted performance evaluation. The following situational differences in enlisted performance evaluation. The following situational differences were analyzed within job-specialty and pay grade: Size of command, rank of commanding officer, location and deployment, type-command, time-on-board, and job specialty by deployment and type-command. The data were taken from the operational NAVPERS 792 Performance Evaluation Forms (N=30,000). (Author)
