Abstract : A study was made to determine the relative impact of dichotomized task performance data compared to percent time-spent estimates for those members performing each task on the group job descriptions determined through application of the Comprehensive set of Occupational Data Analysis Programs (CODAP). Using groups identified by a routine application of the CODAP system, the percent members performing vector was found to correlate with the percent time spent by total group vector or group job description. These findings suggest that in groups of five or more individuals, dichotomized task performance data, which has previously been shown to have high reliability and validity, is a critical component in the resultant group job description.
