Abstract

The U.S. Navy requires Sailors who can engage in multi-tasking, high stress, team oriented missions without degradation in any of the tasks and with minimal requirements for training. In order to select these Sailors an assessment battery must be developed to provide a method by which to accurately and efficiently place individuals in jobs that fit their strengths and weaknesses. Our approach will include a comprehensive literature review, task analysis, select validated instrument to measure personality traits, and integrate the findings into the Navy's existing infrastructure. Our research design will include both concurrent and predictive validation approaches.
