Abstract : The officer grade requirements project was accomplished to determine the appropriate distribution of grades for Air Force officer positions. Descriptions were obtained for 79,759 officer jobs in grades lieutenant through colonel, and a subset of 3,575 descriptions was drawn from this file to serve as a criterion sample. A special Hq USAF policy board composed of 22 colonels was called to determine the appropriate grade for each job in this criterion sample. In the present study, an attempt was made using regression analysis to account for rater disagreement in terms of variables associated with the raters and with the rating situation. In all, 81 predictors were hypothesized and tested. A second goal of the study was to account for the variance in the raters' level of confidence in their grade ratings. (Author)
