The report describes the procedures followed in identifying and analyzing social incentives which might be used in Air Force technical training. Questionnaire techniques were used to scale potential incentives for attractiveness, feasibility and other characteristics. Personal motives, background variables, and leadership climate factors were found to be related to attractiveness ratings. Six social incentives from the original list were redesignated as social behaviors which should be encouraged in training environments to enhance performance. On the basis of the questionnaire and administrative assessments of feasibility data, 18 additional incentives both social and non-social were proposed for use in a field experimental situation.
