This thesis replicated a 1983 study by Navy Personnel Research and Development Center reviewing the possible differences in the narrative portions of Naval Fitness Reports. The sample used in this study consisted of FitReps of Naval Postgraduate School students and those written by senior officers with both men and women in their commands. NPRDC discovered significant differences in the average number of descriptors used in FitReps written about women as opposed to those written about men. There were 16 different descriptors which showed a difference. The current study showed no differences in the mean number of descriptors used in FitReps in this sample. However, FitReps written by women showed differences in two descriptors, "Relations with Others" and "Recommendations." FitReps written on women received more recommendations than those written on men.
