OFFICER JOB EVALUATION IN TERMS OF MERITED PAY VERSUS MERITED GRADE,
PERSONNEL RESEARCH LAB LACKLAND AFB TEX
Descriptions for 144 officer jobs were ranked by captains and majors attending the Air Force Command and Staff College. These rankings were accomplished along 2 dimensions, merited grade and merited pay, using an unbalanced, incomplete block design. Significant differences between the 2 sets of rankings were observed. For in stance, job descriptions for pilots of conven tional aircraft, helicopters, and single engine jets are ranked substantially higher on pay than on grade. This is true to a lesser extent for many scientific, engineering, and medical jobs. Jobs which were rated higher on grade than on pay include many of the directors and a variety of staff jobs. The results indicate that a single job evaluation plan will not be adequate for predicting both pay rankings and grade rankings. Author
