Abstract:

One of the most important and controversial issues among Air Force officers is the new Officer Evaluation System OER. The new system was adopted in 1974 because of widespread dissatisfaction with the previous evaluation system. Yet, nearly two years later, many officers still regard this system with trepidation and anxiety. This thesis investigated several aspects of the new OER system. It reviewed some general concepts of performance appraisal and then traced the development of the new OER, including the philosophy upon which it is based and the objectives which it was designed to accomplish.
