Abstract : The principal objective of this research was to develop an inventory approach to estimating Air Force job reading requirements. We have concluded that the approach is feasible for further development and implementation. The inventory was readily compiled from existing occupational analysis data, mass produced, mass administered using current Air Force procedures, optically scanned, and analyzed using existing Air Force equipment and resources. It is effective in capturing differences in reading requirements and behavior between specialties and among job tasks within a specialty. On the basis of job task titles and some obvious differences between maintenance and clerical occupations, the kinds of reading reported appear appropriate to the nature of the incumbents' activities.
