ERTEL, KENNETH A.
BY QUESTIONNAIRE, FACTS WERE OBTAINED REGARDING 12 CATEGORIES OF MERCHANDISING PERFORMED BY 609 SUPERVISORY AND NONSUPERVISORY PERSONNEL OF 33 DEPARTMENT, LIMITED-PRICE VARIETY, AND GENERAL MERCHANDISING STORES. THIS SAMPLE WAS SELECTED FROM A POPULATION OF 13,643 MERCHANDISING EMPLOYEES, WORKING IN A TOTAL OF 234 FIRMS, IN KING AND PIERCE COUNTIES, WASHINGTON. THE WORK CATEGORIES WERE SELLING, STOCKKEEPING, CHECKSTAND OPERATION, MERCHANDISE RECEIVING AND MARKING, DELIVERY, RECORD KEEPING, COMPUTING, DISPLAY, ADVERTISING, BUYING, PRICING, AND MERCHANDISE CONTROL. DATA GATHERED BY THE QUESTIONNAIRE WERE USED TO CALCULATE PERCENTAGES OF EMPLOYEES PERFORMING EACH CATEGORY OF WORK. OTHER COLLECTED DATA PROVIDED A PROFILE OF THE WORKERS IN TERMS OF OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING, EDUCATION, SEX, AGE, EXPERIENCE IN PRESENT OCCUPATION, JOB MOBILITY, EMPHASIS OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDY, AND GROUPINGS OF MAJOR TASKS PERFORMED. THIS INFORMATION WAS TO BE USED IN IDENTIFICATION AND ASSESSMENT OF KNOWLEDGES AND KNOWLEDGE CLUSTERS MOST LIKELY TO PROVIDE BASES FOR TRAINING AND CAREER-LONG ADVANCEMENT. THE KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT STUDY WAS IN PROGRESS AT THE TIME OF REPORTING, AND FURTHER ANALYSIS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE DATA WAS TO BE POSTPONED UNTIL AFTER ITS COMPLETION. THIS VOLUME REPRESENTS PART 6 OF THE 13-PART FINAL REPORT ON THE VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL EDUCATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT OF WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY.
