Pagination or Media Count:
A job inventory covering the six specialties, plus shredouts, of the entire Navigator-Observer Utilization Field, and consisting of 460 tasks grouped under 12 duty categories, was administered to the analysis sample of 1,996 officers in 19 major air commands during September through December 1965. Incumbents of six grades, colonel to second lieutenant, completed a background information section and rated, on a 9-point scale, the relative time spent on tasks. The inventory of duties and tasks used in the survey is included at the end of Volume I. AD-672 679. Job descriptions are presented for 22 special groups selected on the basis of DAFSC and grade. Duty and task descriptions are also presented for 100 job type groups comprising 84 job types, 5 major clusters, 10 subclusters, and the total sample. All materials pertaining to the special groups are included in Volume I printout materials on the job type groups are presented in Volumes II-V. AD-672 680 to AD-672 683. Group overlap matrices indicate the similarity of jobs in terms of percentage of overlap in time spent on tasks. Summary tables indicate the percentage of members in each group who perform each task. Group difference descriptions are given for selected pairs of job types. Distributions of background variables are shown for the 22 special and the 100 job type groups. In the KPATH Sequence Background Information printout, responses to items are listed for every case in the analysis sample. Author
