Includes the following Counseling Examples:
1. When will the new NCOER be available?

A: Due to the recently approved changes, the scheduled implementation is 1 January 2016.

2. What is the reason for the delay?

A: During a review of the new NCOER, the Sergeant Major of the Army and his Senior
Enlisted Council expressed concerns about the effects of the 49% “MOST QUALIFIED”
control box assessment on future NCO promotion rates. In order to identify the absolute best
talent within the NCO Corps, the SMA and his Senior Enlisted Council recommended to the
CSA and SECARMY and they approved a senior rater profile limited to 24%.
This change will slightly postpone implementation (1 January 2016) to allow HRC to revise IT
systems, publications, forms, and Army-wide training materials.

3. Will I still be competitive if I receive a “HIGHLY QUALIFIED” NCOER?

A: Yes. Because the “HIGHLY QUALIFIED” box will be the norm, NCOs will remain
competitive for promotion with “HIGHLY QUALIFIED” NCOERs given they complete their
required professional military education.

4. With a senior rater profile limited to 24%, when will a senior rater be able to render a
second “MOST QUALIFIED” selection if they already utilized their “Silver bullet?” A

A: Because the senior rater profile is limited to 24%, a senior rater can render a “MOST
QUALIFIED” assessment for a particular grade (E-6 through E-9) as follows:

• Any one of the first four reports
• The second “MOST QUALIFIED” assessment no earlier than the ninth report
(2 / 9 = 22.2%)
• The third “MOST QUALIFIED” assessment no earlier than the thirteenth report (3 / 13 =
• The fourth “MOST QUALIFIED” assessment no earlier than the seventeenth report (4 / 17 =

5. In regard to the “Silver bullet” exception, does that still apply with the new senior
rater profile limited to 24%?

A: Yes. A senior rater will still be able to render a “MOST QUALIFIED” selection for any one
of the first four reports rendered for a particular grade (E-6 through E-9). In the event a
senior rater does not render a “MOST QUALIFIED” selection for any of the first four reports,
then the “Silver bullet” exception would not be needed for the fifth report or later.

6. What is pooling?

A: Pooling, or elevating the rating chain beyond the senior rater’s ability to have adequate
knowledge of each Soldier’s performance and potential, in order to provide an elevated
assessment protection for a specific group, runs counter to the intent of the Evaluation
Reporting System (ERS). Rating schemes based on pooling erode Soldiers’ confidence in
the fairness of the ERS and in their leaders. Senior raters must evaluate and identify their
best Soldiers based on performance and potential, regardless of the particular position they

7. A supplementary review is not applicable if the rater of a SSG is an Army MSG and
the senior rater is an Air Force CPT. True or False?

A: False. A supplementary reviewer is required when no uniformed Army-designated rating
official in the rank of CSM/SGM, CW3-CW5, or CPT and above exists in the rating chain for
the rated NCO.

8. If a SSG(P) was serving in an authorized SFC position, which rank would a rendered
NCOER count towards when calculating the senior rater’s profile?


9. What is the minimum calendar day requirement for senior raters of USAR TPU,
DIMA, and drilling IRR Soldiers and ARNG Soldiers?

A: 90 days.

10. Can a British captain serve as a rater for NCOs of all ranks?

A: Yes. Service members of allied forces may serve as a rater only for all NCOs.

11. What is the highest percentage a senior rater can maintain for “MOST QUALIFIED”
ratings per grade?

A: 24%.
