Abstract : This research effort produced a job performance measure based upon data from Air Force occupational surveys. Core tasks are defined for each Air Force specialty (AFS) based upon the occupational survey data. The core tasks are used to determine the level of productivity for enlisted personnel in each AFS. The performance measure developed accounts for the number and difficulty of tasks performed by an airman. Productivity equations were estimated using this performance measure with aptitude and experience being the predictor variables. The performance measure was validated against a performance measure from a more traditional productivity data source. The performance measure was able to rank order airmen similar to the more traditional measure it was compared against. The core task methodology was then extended to 17 AFSs and performance measures and productivity equations were estimated for each AFS.
