The AF Form 910 is the form used to document performance under the Enlisted Evaluation System. The Enlisted Evaluation System has several purposes. The first is to provide feedback to individuals on what is expected of them, advice on how well they are meeting those expectations, and advice on how to better meet those expectations. The second is to provide a reliable, long-term, cumulative record of performance and potential based on that performance. The third is to provide senior NCO evaluation boards, the Weighted Airman Promotion System (WAPS) and other personnel managers sound information to assist in identifying the best qualified officers and enlisted personnel.
To accomplish these purposes, the evaluation system focuses on performance. This illustrates the fact that how well the individual performs, and the qualities the individual brings to the job, are of paramount importance to the Air Force. Performance is most important for successful mission accomplishment. It is also important for development of skills and leadership abilities and in determining who will be selected for advancement through assignments and promotions. The evaluation system emphasizes the importance of performance by using periodic performance feedback as the basis for formal evaluation reports.
Effective supervisors must have an adequate understanding of the evaluation system. EES training was implemented in May 96 to help supervisors fulfill their evaluation responsibilities. All first-time supervisors are required to receive mandatory EES training within 60 days of being appointed as a rater. Additionally, active duty Air Force members should receive recurring EES training. How and when this “refresher” training is conducted is at the discretion of the installation commander.
