Eighty three Randolph senior airmen received line numbers for promotion Wednesday when the Air Force announced its newest staff sergeants selects.

The staff sergeant selection rate of 41.33 percent rose 5.46 percent from last year.
"The promotion opportunity for this year is outstanding," said Chief Master Sgt. Rusty Nicholson, enlisted promotion branch chief at the Air Force Personnel Center here. "This is a great day for the United States Air Force and a significant event for the Air Force's newest group of noncommissioned officers."
The average staff sergeant selectee score for the 07E5 staff sergeant test cycle was 270.71 points, based on the following:
· 131.72 Enlisted Performance Reports
· 55.99 Promotion Fitness Exam
· 54.33 Specialty Knowledge Test
· 2.15 Time in Grade
· 4.72 Time in Service
· 0.85 Decorations
"For this cycle there are 4,894 enlisted Airmen that are still to WAPS test, primarily due to deployment," Chief Nicholson said. "Upon their return, they will be provided the 60-day study time prior to testing and then automatically be considered via the monthly supplemental process."
The complete list of selectees is available at ask.afpc.randolph.af.mil.
Eligible Airmen who tested can find their Weighted Promotion System score notices posted on their Air Force Portal personal page and on the virtual Military Personnel Flight.
Upon accessing the Air Force Portal, Airmen will see a WAPS score notice link that will direct them to their 2007 score notice. The score notice is posted on the portal for 10 days; after 10 days the score will only be located on the vMPF.
Score notices allow Airmen to see how their Promotion Fitness Examination and Specialty Knowledge Test scores rank against those they're directly competing with for promotion within their Air Force Specialty Code. (AFPCNS)
