Personal History Questionnaire.
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
A questionnaire given to 450 cartographic technicians at U.S. Army TOPOCOM is provided. A few questions from the preliminary questionnaire (see TM 001 465) were included, such as sex, age, and GS level. Additional questions deal with parents' education and occupation, technicians' English language facility, level of education reached, and several questions about their high school education. Questions on cartographic training are concerned with how much training was received before and after entering the job, place of training, college level study, tests taken when hired, and level of mathematics used on the job. Experience and work history items ask such things as reason a career in cartography was chosen, GS level when entered and at present, number of years worked at each GS level, length of time in military service, and types of maps on which most time is spent.
