Week Two, Job Analysis and Evaluation


In the second week of this study group we will learn about job analysis and job evaluation. Pay special attention to the purpose of a job analysis as well as the aspects to be assessed and measured when conduction a job analysis. Identifying essential job functions will also be addressed.

For easier distribution of work, each week is divided into three "sessions" that help you break down the material into manageable chunks. 

For all of the study group's tasks, we will be using the Saylor Foundation's course, "PSYCH304: Industrial and Organizational Psychology" which you can access by clicking on "Saylor Foundation, Industrial and Organziational Psychology, PSYCH 304" under "External Links."
