Abstract:

The USAF Occupational measurement Center provides specialty task data to training personnel in the form of occupational survey reports OSR and training extracts. Such data are presented in task statements which are quantified according to percent members performing, relative time spent, task difficulty, and training emphasis. This task statement data provides a precise picture of the kinds of functions personnel in a specific AFS actually perform at a specific point in time. When properly applied, OSR data can be a powerful tool in the design of training content. Generally speaking, OSR task statements are sometimes difficult to translate directly into knowledge requirements. This is especially true of tasks which require some degree of electronics knowledge. Prior to development of the Electronics Principles Inventory, training managers and command representatives had to rely on subjective judgments to arrive at the kinds of knowledge required to perform electronics-oriented tasks. A need for more objective criteria for determining the amount of electronics knowledge necessary to perform Air Force jobs resulted in the development of a new type of USAF job inventory, called the Electronics Principles Inventory.
