What does the Evaluation Reporting System (ERS) identify?
The ERS identifies officers and non-commissioned officers who are best qualified for promotion and assignments to
positions of higher responsibility. ERS also identifies Soldiers who should be kept on active duty, those who should be
retained in grade, and those who should be eliminated.
Under the ERS a Soldier is evaluated on performance and potential. In this system, what three kinds of
evaluations are given?
1. Duty evaluations. Either the DA Form 67–9 or DA Form 2166–8 is used for these evaluations.
2. School evaluations. Either the DA Form 1059 and DA Form 1059–1 is used for these evaluations.
3. DA evaluations. Selection boards and personnel management systems are used for these evaluations. Duty and
school evaluations are single time-and-place evaluations and are used to make DA evaluations. DA evaluations
cover the entire career of an officer and non-commissioned officer.
DA evaluations focus on an individual Soldier's potential. They are judgments on their ability to perform at
current and higher grades, and they are also made to judge whether an officer or NCO should be retained and
given greater responsibility in their present grade. In making DA evaluations, what three factors are
1. Army requirements for leaders: officers and non-commissioned officers frequently change. At times, the Army
has a need for leaders with certain backgrounds, experience, and expertise. The size of the Army leader corps by
law in terms of strength by grade. Army needs limit the number of selections and assignments that can be made.
Thus, a leader’s potential is partially determined by how they compare with their peers.
2. Duty performance. Performance of duty is an extremely important factor in determining a leader’s potential.
Duty performance is judged by how well a Soldier performs their assigned tasks and how well they meet Army
professional values uniquely established for each respective corps.
3. Leader qualifications. It must be considered in order to meet Army needs for outstanding leaders of troop or
technical units, supporting staff managers, and technical specialists. One consideration in determining
qualifications is the different skills and backgrounds required by different specialties. Another consideration is a
Soldier’s individual progress through specialist fields to positions of greater responsibility. In addition, their
length of service, civil schooling, military schooling, or other unique skills required by the Army are considered.
What is the basic structure of the ERS?
- Allows the rater to give shape and direction to the rated officer or non-commissioned officer’s performance.
- Provides a chain-of-command evaluation of a Soldier’s performance and potential.
- Allows the entire evaluation reporting process to be reviewed.
What is the ERS Process designed to do?
- Set objectives for the rated Soldier that supports the organization’s overall achievement of the mission.
- Review the rated Soldier’s objectives, special duties, assigned tasks, or special areas of emphasis and update them to meet current needs.
- Promote performance-related counseling to develop subordinates and better accomplish the organization’s
- Evaluate the rated leader’s performance.
- Assess the rated leader’s potential.
- Ensure a review of the entire process.
- Non-commissioned officer’s organizational rating chain use DA Form 2166–8; and DA Form 2166–8–1.
What will a rating chain for an NCO consist of?
- Rated NCO
- Rater
- Senior Rater
- Reviewer
Can an NCO that is on a recommended list for promotion or frocked to one of the top three NCO grades (first
sergeant (1SG), SGM, or CSM) and is serving in an authorized position for the new grade, rate any NCO under
their supervision, if after the rater's promotion he/she will be senior in pay grade or date of rank to the rated
What is an NCOER?
Rating chain members use the DA Form 2166–8 (NCOER) to provide DA with performance and potential assessments
of each rated NCO. The DA Form 2166–8 also provides evaluation information to ensure that sound personnel
management decisions can be made andthat an NCO’s potential can be fully developed.
