10 10 Tests Administered and Scored

11 11 Options Hand data entry program can be downloaded from the website Scoring Program and User’s Guide found on websitewww.onetcenter.org

12 12 Score Report (1) Person’s scores are compared to general working population – the norm group. graphic, numerical and verbal information

13 13 Score Report (2) Reports the Constructs Measured – not the subtests Percentiles

14 14 What is a Percentile?

15 15 Score Report (3) Number Correct of Total Items No number correct; number attempted

16 16 Score Report (4) Note

17 17 Norms Based on a sample of 4000 people selected to reflect the distributions of workers in five occupational categories as per the US Census Bureau –Professional and Semi-professional –Clerical, Sales, and Kindred Workers –Craftsmen, Foreman, and Kindred Workers –Operatives and Kindred Workers –Laborers (except farm and mine)

18 18 General Working Population Norms developed in 1950s Studies show Means and SDs stable over time (USES Test Report No 148, 1984) Sample called the General Working Population

19 19 General Working Population (2) Sample selected to represent the percent of population by occupational groupings –Age Range = years –Mean Education = 11 years Males, 10.2 Females, 11.7 –Gender Males, 46% Females, 54% –Supplemented by many additional studies to include high school students –See General Aptitude Test Battery, Development Report, Section III for details

20 20 Linking GATB Norms to the AP Equating study performed between GATB and AP Results sufficiently similar between GATB and AP so that the general working population norms could be used (Segall and Monzon, 1995)

21 21 Score Report (5)

22 22 Score Report (6)

23 23 Score Report (7)

24 24 Selecting a Job Zone

25 25 Occupational Reports Five occupational listings are generated, one for each job zone

26 26 Job Zone 1 Occupations

27 27 Job Zone 2 Occupations

28 28 Job Zone 3 Occupations

29 29 Job Zone 4 Occupations

30 30 Job Zone 5 Occupations

31 31 Match Profile to Occupational Information (1) Occupational Ability Profiles (OAPs) were created for each of the 950+ O*NET occupations (see available development report for more detail) Ability scores of job incumbents (1000+ jobs) along with information from the DOT (e.g., data, people things; SVP) were used to estimate the 9 ability scores for each occupation Occupation profiles were converted to the existing O*NET/SOC classification system

32 32 Match Profile to Occupational Information (2) Person’s ability profile is matched to occupational profile –Using index of similarity (correlation) Shape of the profile matters, not the level or percentile Minimum of 10 occupations are generated for each job zone –up to 25 if they are “strong matches” –correlation cutoff depends on number of AP subtests taken

33 33 Score Report (8) Fire Inspector Retail Salesperson Based on list of occupations, the client selects one job from Job Zone 1 and two from Job Zone 3 Advertising Sales Agent

34 34 Exploring an Occupation Select occupation to explore Example: Fire Inspectors, Job Zone 3 Go to O*NET ONLINE –http://online.onetcenter.org
