Abstract:

A recurring question with respect to performance is the validity of the standards of measurement. The USAF Academy, along with many other institutions, uses various standards of performance to measure the achievement of cadets while they are at the Academy. Since almost all cadets are constrained to enter the Air Force upon graduation, there is a continuous chronological record of performance. Record keeping is extensive and identifiable at a personal level, so that the Academy and the follow-on U.S. Air Force environment are ideal institutions for the investigation of specific performance measures. In particular, is there any correlation causality between measures of performance prior to, during, and subsequent to the four years at the Academy. Knowledge of these relationships or lack would be valuable in validating old standards or developing new ones. Author
