Matching job education requirements with candidates' educational attainments : a pilot methodological study by William J Watson( Book )

4 editions published between 1975 and 1980 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The traditional methods for documenting educational achievements have limited application for prescribing desirable and mandatory educational prerequisites for service in the various officer utilization fields. There is no standard technology or format of the various colleges throughout the United States of America, and so the college transcript is an ambiguous document. This report describes an education profile that was developed to display a candidate's educational achievements in a simple, standard, quantified format. It was found that the data in college transcripts could be condensed into these profiles with a high degree of reliability. It was also demonstrated that a sample of 'experts' could rate, with a high degree of interrater reliability, a collection of such profiles on educational suitability for service in the Administrative Officer Utilization Field (AFSC 70XX). Furthermore, regression analysis established that these ratings (or 'educational suitability indexes') could be satisfactorily duplicated by mathematical equations using a limited number of aspects of the education profiles as predictor variables. This was a pilot methodological study. Hence, the sample of raters used was not random, and only one utilization field was studied. However, the results are sufficiently convincing to justify further research. The findings supported the feasibility of developing a series of mathematical equations for computing, from education profiles, educational suitability indexes for each of a variety of utilization fields.
