Abstract:

Research by the Occupational and Manpower Research Div. of the AF Human Resources Lab., Lackland, Texas, has established that task training priority is a function of task factors and that, within a specialty, training priority ratings can be duplicated mathematically from task factor ratings. Because these ratings are measured on a different scale for each specialty, this methodology cannot be generally established and applied. To overcome this limitation, a series of benchmark scales are being developed for the measurement of task factors against common frames of reference. This report, the first in a series, establishes the concept of the scales and describes the method to be used in their development and validation. It then reports on the development phase of the scales for specialties with either an administrative or general aptitude requirement. Subsequent reports will deal with the validation phase of this series of scales, and the development and validation phases of scales for specialties with an electronic aptitude requirement and for those with a mechanical aptitude requirement.
