Two hundred airman job descriptions were evaluated by senior NCOs, company grade officers, and field grade officers in terms of merited skill level, merited grade, confidence in assigned grade ratings, and extent to which five job requirement factors were demanded. Comparisons were made to determine group differences in skill level ratings and the relation between merited grade ratings and skill level ratings of airman jobs. The group differences observed were statistically significant in two aspects. The skill level ratings of the NCO group were more reliable than those of the officer groups, and the mean of the NCO skill ratings was larger than the means of the ratings given by officers. Two statistically significant differences were obtained which indicated that merited grade was superior to merited skill level as a criterion in airman job evaluation. The merited grade ratings were more reliable than the merited skill level ratings, and the level of predictive efficiency of five job requirement factors was higher for a merited grade criterion.
