Abstract : The purpose of this study was to develop a comprehensive standard list of skills, knowledges, aptitudes, personal characteristics, attitudes, and work habits needed for satisfactory job performance. Basic requirements were identified in previous research, airman specialty descriptions, and job training standards. The initial list consists of 250 work requirements, each relevant to at least 3 specialties. Two experimental rating scales were developed for evaluating the requirements for any one specialty. Work requirements and rating scales are defined in a form designed for collecting data from airman job (subject-matter) experts that will reflect differences in training requirements. In a preliminary field test, 7-level airmen in 43 career ladders reported that the standard list satisfactorily covers essential requirements of the 5-level specialties they rated; but their ratings indicate one scale must be revised. Appendixes give a list of 297 requirements identified by other investigators and definitions for each of the 250 work requirements in the standard list developed for airman specialties. (Author)
