The purpose of this thesis was to create a structure for analyzing the training school performance of Hispanic- American enlistees in the Navy. This was accomplished by developing a computerized data base, utilizing an extract of the Navy Enlisted Classification Tracking file (NECTRACK) and the Enlisted Training Tracking file (TRAINTRACK) , supplied by the Navy Personnel Research and Development Center. In addition, a review of literature was undertaken to provide a summary of available information on factors that may influence the performance of Hispanic-Americans in the Navy. Finally, the data base was explored by conducting a preliminary analysis of the relationship between selected training outcomes and the educational level of Hispanic sailors. Several recommendations are offered concerning the application of the data base and the treatment of research variables. In addition, further study is recommended using the data set developed for this thesis.
