Abstract : Like many other organizations, the Navy for a number of years has been wrestling with problems of validating personnel selection tests against job performance criteria. An exploratory study of the characteristics of surrogate job performance criteria was conducted at NPRDC using General Detail personnel (GENDETs). Gendets are enlisted personnel who do not receive Navy Technical school training for specific jobs. Instead they are sent directly to the Fleet and serve there in apprenticeship positions, generally in the Seaman, Fireman, and Airman ratings, where they receive training on the job. (Author)
