This website is dedicated to completing that portion of the AF Form 910 that gives people the most trouble: the Performance Assessment blocks. Generally, as ratees, our main responsibility in completing the EPR is turning in a list of golden EPR Bullets. But let's not underestimate the importance of this task —it is important. The better the EPR Bullets, the easier it is to justify a firewall 5 EPR. And the more firewall 5 EPRs you earn, the sooner you get promoted and the sooner you go on to bigger and better challenges. Like a tiny acorn that grows into a mighty oak, it all starts with the lowly EPR Bullet.

Writing Strong EPR Bullets
Most of the time, we don't need help identifying our accomplishments. We know what we do. The problem is how to make those bullet statements sound good! It's the impact portion of the EPR Bullet, the positive result of an accomplishment, that give us the most frustration. More...
You Can't Say That!
Although the EPR is a record of an Airman's performance during the reporting period, there are some things we're not allowed to include in an EPR even if they did occur during the reporting period. The Air Force considers certain topics to be inappropriate...More
Sometimes it takes a certain amount of motivation to get Airmen to change their behavior. One of the behaviors that takes some time and effort to change is an Airman's willingness to be promoted. Believe it or not, many Airman really don't want to be promoted! More...
