Abstract : The exploratory study using a job inventory developed for the Medical Materiel Career Ladder is concerned with a simple evaluation of three methods for estimating the difficulty of tasks: rating on a relative scale; rank ordering; and computing an index from average grade job imcumbents performing each task. The data suggest the rating approach is one to be preferred although some additional questions arose concerning possible effects of task wording on variability across judges, or raters. (Author)
