Abstract : The present paper describes two recent task oriented rating (TOR) studies conducted in the Bell System in which TOR forms based on job inventory results were developed and utilized. The study objectives were to (1) examine the psychometric properties of TORs, and (2) determine whether supervisors can use TORs to evaluate task by task effectiveness. Several job analytic based TOR and TOR-like approaches have been studied for many jobs with generally favorable results. TORs are an efficient way to evaluate job performance because the rating forms are easily developed once job tasks have been analyzed, performance can be rated in about five to ten minutes per employee, results can be used for employee development and appraisal feedback sessions, and TORs have high face validity because important job tasks are covered.
