The Surface Warfare Officer community has begun a series of fundamental changes in the methods used to train junior officers. Since 1970, newly commissioned officers reported to the Surface Warfare Officers School(SWOS) to attend the Division Officer Course. This school was designed to expose and educate prospective division officers to the tasks and equipment they would be expected to manage once they reported to their first ship. The majority of the material from this classroom training will now be completed onboard ship, using computer-based training and Personnel Qualification Standards(PQS). This study will examine junior officer performance at the previous SWOS Division Officer Course. Specifically it will identify areas where newly commissioned officers have had difficulty in the past and, using selected background variables, predict the performance of various groups under the new training regime. The secondary objective is to create a model to predict areas in the curriculum that cause problems for certain groups.
