Abstract:

Three sets of information are evaluated as predictors of unsatisfactory airman performance as defined by a combination of supervisory ratings and unsuitability discharges selection and classification variables, basic training performance ratings, and high school reference data. Two 2,000-case samples were identified for which predictor and performance criterion data were available after 2 years of service. Multiple regression analysis applied to the data demonstrated that, within the framework of the current selection and classification process, improved predictio5s of airman performance are obtainable from educational reference data and behavioral evaluations collected during training. It appears possible to evaluate new airmen during their first month of active duty with a fair amount of accuracy in terms of their potential worth to the Air Force. Author
