The Air Force assessment needs analysis was conducted to determine potential enhancements of Air Force pre-accession screening processes to improve selection and classification of Airmen. Improved screening can benefit the Air Force through lower training attrition rates, improved job performance, and increased retention. The needs assessment was centered around a list of 71 attributes and a list of 29 competencies. The attribute list includes attitudes, aptitudes, and character traits that are either already screened for in the Air Force, in development, or under consideration. A main consideration of the needs analysis is the determination of competencies and attributes necessary for acceptable performance in Air Force occupations, or specialties (AFSs). Examinations were made to determine whether new assessments may improve Airmen classification or selection, as well as where existing assessments may be better used. Data was collected by surveying Technical Training Instructors (TTI), Field Training Unit Instructors (FTUI), career field Front Line Supervisors (FLS), and through focus groups conducted with TTI/FTUIs for selected career fields.
