Weaknesses of the present U.S. Navy Fitness Report Reporting System are reviewed and discussed. An alternative personnel evaluation system is proposed in order to take advantage of the benefits of several evaluative techniques. Different evaluation techniques would be used in the several phases of an officer's career. In the junior officer (developmental) phase, emphasis would be on management by objectives, stressing counseling and feedback. In the middle (staffing/managerial) phase emphasis would be placed on evaluation for selection and promotion. In the senior (executive) phase, the use of assessment centers is proposed Finally, a list of recommendations is provided.
