Abstract:

A methodology for assessing ability requirements for Air Force occupational specialties is demonstrated. Ratings of the importance of 28 abilities were obtained from subject-matter experts in four enlisted and four officer specialties. The ratings showed high interrater reliability. The ratings were consistent with conventional expectations about pilot and nonpilot officers and about the enlisted specialties. Further, factor analysis demonstrated factors of verbal, quantitative, and psychomotor domains as have often been found from factoring test batteries, providing further evidence of the logic validity of the methodology.
