How taxonomies can be used in personnel psychology.

The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) may be the best example of how taxonomies can be used in personnel psychology. As you may have discovered in previous weeks, the O*NET taxonomy defines the set of occupations through data collected from job incumbents and occupation experts. Each occupation requires a different set of knowledge, skills, abilities, and other personal characteristics (KSAOs), and a specific occupation involves a variety of activities and tasks.

Several taxonomies are included in the O*NET content model, which is the foundation of the O*NET. The six major domains (worker characteristics, worker requirements, experience requirements, occupation-specific information, workforce characteristics, and occupational requirements) can be used to describe worker and job attributes. Each of these major domains includes several taxonomies that are more specific. The model expands to 277 descriptors collected by the O*NET program, using on-the-job research and organizational analysis (O*NET). Often, the O*NET information and scales are an ideal, cost-effective tool readily available to researchers doing job and occupational analysis.

For this Discussion, select one of the job analysis approaches (Personnel Selection, Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ), Job Task Analysis, Task Survey) you studied this quarter. Consider advantages and disadvantages of O*NET compared to that approach.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 the job analysis approach you selected. Then, describe two advantages and two disadvantages of the O*NET compared to that approach. Finally, describe two factors that may cause a job analysis to become outdated and explain why.

Your post should be three paragraphs. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. APA format.

 

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
