Abstract : The general purpose of the study was to provide information about scaling techniques which could be used for rating work activities or work behaviors. The initial phase was concerned with the development of numerically anchored scales for use in rating job tasks and job titles on certain physical and sensory dimensions. A later phase was devoted to the construction of job task anchored scales, these scales incorporating previously-scaled job tasks as benchmarks to represent scale levels. In a final phase, a comparison was made of the relative effectiveness of the scales which had been constructed of job task anchored benchmarks as opposed to scales based on numerically anchored ones.
