This project has focused on developing a technology for assessing the performance capability of enlisted personnel, with the goal of determining relationships among selection and classification standards on-the-job performance. This report describes those relationships. A brief overview of the Air Force Job Performance Measurement JPM research program is followed by result of analyses conducted for eight Air Force enlisted specialties of relationships among enlistment test scores, job experience, educational attainment, and hands-on job performance test scores. Additional analyses indicating the reliability and validity of the JPM technology are presented for four Air Force specialties. Finally, plans for applying the JPM technology to selection and classification systems and training systems are described.
