Introduction The United States Air Force utilizes a sophisticated evaluation system for its enlisted airmen. The system provides a reliable method of distinguishing high performers from low performers. It encompasses a ‘whole person’ concept. This concept evaluates not only an airman’s primary duties, but also areas like teamwork, leadership, training, and fitness. First, it discusses assessment areas. Secondly, discussion on the formal timeline is provided. Next, it covers the requirements of an effective performance evaluation process. Then it covers the appeal process. Followed by, the impact of the appraisal to both the organization and the individual is discussed. It then moves to recommendations followed lastly by a summary. Context The United States Air Force requires an annual written performance evaluation. The Air Force instruction that governs this is AFI 36-2406. The instruction provides guidance on both how to evaluate and when to evaluate. There are minimum requirements to become a first level rater. A rater must be a noncommissioned officer and have graduated from Airman Leadership School, which is the first level of professional military education. There are also requirements to be a second level rater. Those requirements are that the rater must be a senior noncommissioned officer and have graduated from the second level of professional military education, known as the Noncommissioned Officer Academy. The third and last level of rater is the reviewer level. The requirement for this level is that the rater is a commissioned officer and possesses the duty title of commander. The Air Force’s performance evaluation system is a hybrid of both behavior and results oriented systems. This paper focuses on an aircraft maintenance unit and its 319 members and the application of the enlisted evaluation system used.
