Through the years some form of evaluation system has been used to evaluate the abilities and the performance of enlisted personnel in the United States Navy. This system has progressed from word -of-mouth reputation between commanding officers to our present well-defined method of semiannual performance evaluations of all enlisted personnel. A formal system of evaluation appears to have begun in the Navy in approximately 1917. Instructions for evaluating personnel and the recording of these evaluations were issued in the form of circular letters issued by the old Bureau of Navigation. From 1920 until the present, instructions have been published in a personnel manual. Chapter II, III, and IV of this paper will trace the development of the evaluation system through the years 1921 to 1966. There can be no doubt that in an organization as large as the United States Navy an appraisal system of some kind is mandatory. The Navy is a continuously changing organization, personnel are on the move, going to schools, being promoted, sent on special assignments, and leaving the service for civilian life. To select the best personnel for Navy life and for all of its many programs requires a vast amount of effort. Without an evaluation system the task would not be possible.
