# Situational Judgement

The Official AFOQT Situational Judgement subtest is 50 questions and must be completed in 35 minutes. Questions are designed to test your reasoning within situations that officers often face in their day to day operations and communications with other U.S. Air Force members.

HOWEVER… The Situational Judgement subtest that you find on our site is shorter and less comprehensive. We are providing a sample of questions of the type that might be found on the Official AFOQT. Here, you will be presented with 10 questions and no time limit. The directions that follow are those found on the Official AFOQT exam.

Situational Judgement

DIRECTIONS: This part of the test measures your judgment in responding to interpersonal situations similar to those you may encounter as an officer. Your responses will be scored relative to the consensus judgment across experienced U.S. Air Force officers.

For each situation, you must respond to two questions. First, select which one of the five actions listed you judge the MOST EFFECTIVE action in response to the situation. Then, select which one of the five actions listed you judge the LEAST EFFECTIVE action in response to the situation. [NOTE: Although some actions may have been judged equally effective or equally ineffective by experienced officers, select only one action (A-E) for each question.]
