Abstract : Ten job inventories were constructed for survey of a number of 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 was related to an earlier finding that airmen at supervisory skill levels provide the best job information. Broad statements to 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 were reviewed, and significant contributions were added to job inventory content. Inventory responses were keypunched and verified in preparation for electronic data processing. (Author)
