What is Relative Value?
• RV is a numerical representation of how a single
fitness report compares to other reports written by
the same RS on Marines of the same grade
• RV= TOOL that displays RS’s marking philosophy
• RV should be used within the context of all other
information on the report
• RV=Common Language that translates the RS’s
Marking Philosophy (fitrep average ) by grade of
Marine reported on
• RV Levels the playing field among RSs reporting
on Marines of the same grade

How does RV Work?
•
First, you must calculate the Fitrep Average.
•
Each of 14 attributes has a value from A through
H:
A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=Not
Observed
•
Avg. of all observed attributes=Fitrep Average
– i.e. a straight B report (28/14) = 2.0
•
Then, you calculate the Relative Value. Which
works off of a curve scaled from 80 to 100
Highest=100; lowest=80; average of all reports=
90
•
RS average (90) derived from the total value of
all observed reports divided by the total number
of observed reports
1.5+2.0+3.0+4.0+4.4+4.6+5.0/7=3.5
•
RS must process at least three reports on
Marines of the same grade before RV is
displayed on MBS
•
REMEMBER: Approximately Half of all
21
observed
fitreps (Sgt – LtCol) will be less than 90
RV
RS Average = 3.5
1.5 2.0
80
3.0
4.0 4.4 4.6 5.0
90
Below 90 RV
does NOT mean
Below Average Performance
100
What do the numbers mean?
• Board members are always briefed that the context of the particular
report is always important
• Relative Value
* 90 RV is not the magic #
– RV broken down into thirds
• Upper: 93.34 to 100
• Middle: 86.67 to 93.33
• Lower: 80.00 to 86.66
• Para 4006.4.b, “Grades are earned by the MRO’s displayed efforts
and apparent results; they are not given to attain a perceived fitness
report average or relative value”
