Since August 2008, the newly commissioned Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) has been trained for SWO qualification through the INTRO/ASAT program. Through this program, USNA and NROTC officers check onto their first ship and subsequently attend a five-week introductory course given by the Afloat Training Group (ATG) located in one of the Fleet Concentration Areas, and OCS officers attend the course in Newport, RI. Following this training, they report to their ship for on-the-job training (OJT). Computer Based Training (CBT) discs are available to use as references. About 17 months following commissioning, the officer then reports to Surface Warfare Officer School (SWOS) for three weeks of Advanced Shiphandling and Tactics (ASAT) training. Upon arrival at ASAT, the officer is administered the SWO Fundamentals exam, designed to measure knowledge and retention of information covered during the OJT period. This thesis analyzes the SWO Fundamentals exam scores from 2007 to 2010 to determine which demographic and background variables affect a student's success and failure rates on the exam. Significant differences were found in gender, race, commissioning source, ship type, homeport, and class year.
