Abstract:

What can be learned from the experience of analyzing jobs and testing employees in industry that can help advance the goal of assessing and improving college performance is summarized. It is apparent that grades, the traditional way of measuring college performance, do not explain much about one's performance in employment. There are two areas where industry assessments are most applicable to the national goal of improving and assessing the performance of college students. The first area concerns efforts to identify knowledge, skills, and abilities that are required for jobs (job analysis). The second area concerns employee assessments, especially in selection tests. Several job analysis methods and selection test types are described, including: (1) ability tests; (2) biodata; and (3) work samples. A first step in making college experiences more accessible and useful for employers would be to assemble information about student performance in more innovative ways. The next step would be to encourage education to be conducted in ways that develop job-related skills. A 54-item list of references is included. The appendixes provide graphs, a chart, and a discussion of job and job functions analyses. Reviews by E. M. Greenberg, M. A. Miller, and M. L. Tenopyr of this paper are provided. (Sld).
