Abstract:

This evaluation was conducted to determine the ability of administrative clerk apprentices graduated from Air Training Command Course Nr ABR 70230 to perform the duties of their specialty, and to further ascertain the effectiveness of directed duty assigness. The performance of the two groups working in an operational environment was evaluated for a 90-day period, utilizing Eglin AFB, Florida, as the test site. SixteenAIRMEN WERE ASSIGNED EIGHT WERE APPRENTICE SCHOOL GRADUATES AND EIGHT WERE DIRECTED DUTY ASSIGNEES. The apprentices accomplished the majority of their assignments competently after they had been on the job for only one week. The instruction receive by the apprentices to perform the majority of tasks was considered adequate however, it is recommended that the present course be revised to include extensive use of administrative series manuals in conjunction with practical projects and additional training on unit mail functions, particularly receiving, indorsing, and dispatching personal mail and more time allotted to material edit. When directed duty assignees are properly screened, selected, motivated, and placed under competent supervision the DDAOJT program is very successful. The average directed duty assignee utilized in this project was effective on the job at the 3-skill level approximately two months after initial field assignment. Author
