Abstract : This thesis utilized longitudinal and performance appraisal information on 182 naval telecommunications personnel from two Naval Communication Stations and an Attack Carrier to develop a career development model and high performance characteristics. High correlation between age and paygrade, mean time between advancements, and years since last advancement; and weak correlation between age and job index, and evaluation scores were noted. When scored on an all or nothing basis the 31-36 year age-group received a significantly higher mean score on the evaluation questionnaire than the 37-42 year age-group. This may be interpreted as early low performance among the personnel sampled for this study. (Author)
