Aptitude, learning, and instruction by Richard E Snow( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 2021 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the previous 6 years before publication, Office of Naval Research (ONR) had been conducting a thematically oriented contract research program aimed, in large part, at developing the kind of broad theoretical framework necessary for a workable process interpretation of aptitude, learning, and performance. Originally published in 1980, the papers in this collection are generally addressed to three broad areas that were central to those interests of the ONR Personnel and Training Research Programs. One area is concerned with individual differences information processing, as revealed in simple laboratory or psychometric tests. The second area focuses on the structural aspects of learning and performance, using tools and concepts from semantic memory theory to describe what is learned and how it is learned. And the third area is aimed at the management of instruction: It addresses itself to the kinds of research and instructional designs required for effective implementation of adaptive instruction

Organizational handling of midcareer moves : the reactions of navy line officers by James K Arima( )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reaction of Navy line officers to the detailing process by which they receive new assignments was examined from the standpoint of the emphasis they thought should be placed on the needs of the service, career needs, and their personal desires, their billet preferences for the new assignment, their career intentions, and the information sources used to ascertain available assignments. These are contrasted with their evaluation of the actual emphasis they found to be placed on Navy, career, and personal needs, their degree of involvement in the decision process, and the acceptability of the new assignment. Multivariate analyses determined the contribution of these factors to overall satisfaction with the detailing process and their impact on career intentions. The majority of officers were satisfied with detailing and their new assignment and intended to continue on active duty. Both the minority that was less than satisfied and those on whom the detailing process made a negative career impact were in sufficient numbers to warrant further efforts to study and improve the handling of midcareer officer moves.

A Model for the Prediction of Advancements in the Navy Enlisted Force by Paul R Milch( )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A modified regression model was found to be sufficiently accurate to predict advancements by LOS using the volume of advancements and the inventory by LOS as predictor variables. This model was then used to find a relationship between the mean LOS of advancements and the volume of advancements. Such a relationship was not readily verifiable from the data. Some what contrary to expectation, it was found that the mean LOS of advancements may be either a decreasing or an increasing function of volume. Whether it is the former or the latter depends on the pay grade, rating and fiscal year in question. A possible explanation for both the decreasing and increasing type of behavior is also offered.

The 1980 Survey of Certain Unrestricted Line Officers of the Navy Regarding Their Reassignment to a New Position by James K Arima( )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1980 URL Feedback Survey was a questionnaire enclosed and forwarded with change-of-station orders issued to Navy line officers in the spring and summer of 1980. The purpose of the questionnaire were (1) to elicit perceptions of the detailing process as a feedback to the officer distribution systems; and (2) to study officer attitudes about the new assignments and their perceived impact on individual careers according to their place in the career development process. This initial report documents the conduct of the survey, describes the respondent sample, and assesses the quality of the data. The variables resulting from the survey and their location on an SPSS system file are documented in a user-oriented codebook. Free responses to an open-ended question on satisfaction with detailing are reproduced. (Author)
Managing for organizational quality : theory and implementation : an annotated bibliography by Nida Backaitis( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography is intended to provide recommended readings and videotapes on managing organizations for quality improvement. The target audience consists primarily of managers and leaders for quality in the Department of Navy activities. The aim of this volume is to bring together a collection of materials drawn from a wide variety of sources, some of which are not typically associated with quality improvement. This is because the Navy Personnel Research and Development Center has long recognized the need for an understanding and application of principles and concepts from such areas as organizational change, leadership team functioning, reward systems, statistical thinking, and accounting to effect a major transformation in organizations. The integration of theories and knowledge from these areas will serve as the basis for orienting an organization toward quality and for designing organizational systems for the future. The document is divided into 11 sections that include such titles as: (1) "The Competitive Position of U.S. Industry"; (2) "The Quality Philosophy and Management Principles for Improvement of Quality, Productivity, and Competitive Position"; (3) "The Management of Organizational Change and Transformation"; and (4) "The Roles of Management and Leadership in Improvement of Organizational Quality."

Aptitude, learning, and instruction( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 2021 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1987, this book reports the proceedings of a conference held in 1983 at Stanford, California. The purpose of the conference was to bring together individuals whose research reflected advanced theoretical thinking and empirical evidence on the combined analysis of cognitive, conative, and affective processes, the role of these processes in learning from instruction, and the importance of individual differences therein. The Editors believed that this volume made an early and important contribution to the reemphasis and reexamination of the conative and affective aspects of human performance, in coordination with cognitive psychology, in the study of aptitude, learning, and instruction. It takes its place as Volume 3 of the Aptitude, Learning, and Instruction series
Prediction of job performance : review of military studies by Robert Vineberg( )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literature pertaining to prediction of enlisted military job performance, 1952-1980, was reviewed. The review excluded studies in which training performance or reenlistment is the criterion. Aptitude was the most frequently used predictor and supervisor ratings the most frequent criterion. Relationships among classes of criteria and between predictors and criteria were examined. Major classes of criteria were job proficiency, job performance, and suitability to military service. The following conclusions are supported by the review: (1) For the great majority of jobs, job knowledge tests appear to provide the most practical method of objective measurement; (2) Because job sample tests are very expensive to construct and administer, their use is not practical unless the job is extremely costly or critical; and (3) Use of supervisors' ratings as the only measure of job performance should be restricted to jobs for which motivation, social skill, and response to situational requirements are the only attributes worth measuring. Two promising approaches to improved prediction are the selective use of miniaturized training and assessment centers and the use of self-paced training performance as a predictor. The review includes abstracts of the studies that were reviewed

Total quality management implementation : selected readings( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Total Quality Management (TQM) is both a philosophy and a set of guiding principles that represent the foundation of a continuously improving organization. By definition, TQM is the application of quantitative methods and human resources to improve (1) the materials and services supplied to an organization, (2) all the significant processes within an organization, and (3) the degree to which the needs of the customers are met, now and in the future. TQM was first applied in the Department of Defense (DoD) in the early 1980's in a few logistic field activities. In 1987, its use began to rapidly expand with the advent of support from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Production and Logistics (OASD (P & L)) (TQM/IPQ). TQM is now one of DoD's primary initiatives. In 1988, in response to the publication of a Department of Defense statement entitled DoD Posture on Quality, managers began to ask for information and examples of TQM implementation. To meet that request, OASD (P & L) asked the Organizational Systems Department of the Navy Personnel Research and Development Center to prepare a compilation of readings and case studies to assist managers in implementing TQM. For ease of presentation, the various articles have been organized into four sections: Management and Leadership Focus (Section 1), Guidelines for the Development of TQM (Section 2), Quality Improvement Strategy (Section 3), and Case Studies: Special Applications of TQM (Section 4)

Alternative methodological approaches and manifest characteristics of organizations in terms of effectiveness are considered. A compilation of independent, dependent, and intervening variables is presented. Suggestions are offered for future research in the Navy setting in the area of organizational effectiveness. (Author)
An Introduction to quality management : selected readings( Book )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is intended for the classroom as an aid in orienting managers at Navy logistics and maintenance establishments to the basic concepts of total quality management (TQM). Through the kind permission of a number of publishers, we have been able to reproduce here some key articles about TQM. It is not the intent of this technical note to provide a comprehensive study of quality management, but rather to aid in planning for an implementation of the Deming approach to TQM. Although the Navy aviation community chose the Deming approach to quality management, as reflected in the selected readings, other approaches are possible. The report is comprised of four parts. Section 1 consists of articles that present an overview of quality management, its background and general concepts. The sequence of articles was chosen to first present what quality management is, how it has been successfully implemented in Japan, and the impact of Japan's success on gaining the competitive edge. Once these philosophical matters have been explored, the implementation strategies and practices are treated (Section 2). Section 3 reports on case studies of various organizations. Each article is preceded by a summary. Section 4 lists other relevant publications produced by NPRDC
