Abstract : The primary purpose of the study was to obtain estimates of the human attribute requirements of the job elements of Form B of the Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ). A secondary purpose was to explore the reliability of job-related ratings as a function of the number of raters. A taxonomy of 76 human attributes was used, and ratings of the relevance of these attributes to each of the PAQ job elements were obtained. A minimum of 8 raters and a maximum of 11 raters rated each of the attributes. The mean and median ratings for each attribute as it related to each job element were computed, these serving as the basis for the attribute profiles of the job elements. Measures of the reliability of the ratings were also obtained. (Author)
