Abstract : As you requested, we reviewed the use and development of gender-neutral occupational performance standards in the military. Specifically, we (1) determined the military services' approaches to implementing gender-neutral performance standards and screening servicemembers to ensure that they can meet the physical demands of their occupations, (2) determined how the military services identified the extent to which servicemembers had problems in accomplishing the physical demands of their jobs, and (3) evaluated the Air Force's implementation of its strength aptitude testing program.
