Dimensions of Job Satisfaction: Initial Development of the Air Force Occupational Attitude Inventory. Interim Report, 1 July 1972-30 June 1974.
Tuttle, Thomas C.; And Others
The report describes the initial development of the Air Force Occupational Attitude Inventory. From a selective review of studies that ascribed to a multi-faceted approach, several categories or content areas were identified. An extensive item pool was prepared and reviewed by judges to provide information regarding item-category agreement, item ambiguity, and item redundancy. The revised version of the inventory consisted of 348 items distributed across 35 facets. An eight-point bi-polar rating scale without a neutral point was developed for rating the items. Details regarding the final version of the inventory booklet, suitable for administration to airmen, are provided. The entire listing of 348 items and descriptions of the 35 categories are included in the report for possible use of other researchers. Subsequent actions and future uses of the Occupational Attitude Inventory are discussed. Fifteen pages of the report consist of supplementary appendixes. (Author)
