In July 1973, a policy-capturing study was conducted at the Computational Sciences Division of the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory to support the development of a Weighted Airman Screening System WASS for the Air Reserve Forces ARF. A group of ARF personnel consisting of six officers and six noncommissioned officers convened to form an experimental promotion policy board. Each board member was tasked with ranking for promotion a representative sample of ARF enlisted men. The sample consisted of E-4 airmen eligible for promotion to E-5 and E-6 airmen eligible for promotion to E-7. The rankings were performed with respect to each airmans promotability on the basis of the following six promotion selection factors 1 Specialty Knowledge Test SKT, 2 Promotion Fitness Examination PFE, 3 Time-in-service TIS, 4 Time-in-grade TIG, 5 Total good years TGY for retirement, and 6 Performance Evaluation Report PER. In total, this report describes the experimental promotion policy board, the reserve airman sample, the promotion selection factors, the procedures followed, the analyses performed, and results in the development of WASS.
