Abstract : A prototype inventory was developed for use by incumbents in Air Force jobs to report reading behavior and reading requirements in relation to the performance of specific tasks. The inventory was designed in a task-related rather than general format to increase consistency of information and to permit use in conjunction with occupational survey data. In a field trial, the inventory was shown to be effective in capturing differences in amount of reading done for different purposes and with various types of material. It also is effective for estimating bth the level of assistance needed in reading and availability of such assistance. The inventory is less effective in providing direct ratings of reading difficulty. (Author)
