Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to determine if a job performance criterion could be developed from averaging airman performance of separate tasks. Airmen who had completed job inventories in the supply field, AFSCs 645X0 and 647X0 from all commands and locations in 1967-1968 were rated by two supervisors in a confidential study. The immediate supervisor and an other supervisor were demanded, with complete rating data and an acceptable job inventory. Despite stringent stipulations, 244 airmen, representing all supply levels and locations, were rated by two supervisors, providing 488 independent sets of ratings. These included an overall rating, ratings on 65 work behavioral traits, performance ratings on all tasks the supervisor was certain the airman performed, and a time-to-train rating on each task in the inventory. The mean task performance rating and the mean task trainability rating were computed. The three criteria of overall performance rating, mean task performance rating, and mean task trainability rating were compared through cross-correlations and cross-regressions, using both the 244 airmen data and the maximum set of 488 observations.
