Construction and Administration of Ten Air Force Job Inventories.
Mayo, Clyde C.
Ten job inventories were constructed for survey of 11 Air Force career ladders. Background variables designed to assess task-related information were included in each inventory. A replication of a previous study of contributions of technical advisers to inventory construction supported the earlier finding that airmen at supervisory skill levels provide the best job information. Broad statements of work designed to discriminate between job types on a more global level than task statements were included in eight job inventories. Trial answer sheets designed to be scored by optical scanning devices were administered on two surveys. Inventory constructors predicted job types for all career ladders surveyed. Write-in information from administrative surveys was reviewed, and significant contributions were added to job inventory content. Inventory responses were keypunched and verified in preparation for electronic data processing. (Author)
