AEL Career Decision-Making Program. [Worker Trait Group Index to Occupational Information:] Worker Trait Group Index to the Encyclopedia of Careers; Worker Trait Group Index to the Occupational Outlook Handbook.
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.
This document contains two occupational information indexes. The first index is an arrangement of the occupational titles contained in the "Occupational Outlook Handbook" (OOH). The information in this index is arranged in four columns: (1) the numbers to identify the CDM Career Area-Worker Trait Group code; (2) Worker Trait Group title, DOT title, and OOH title; (3) the nine-digit DOT classification code; and (4) the page number of the 1976-77 edition of the OOH on which information about the occupation is found. The second index is an arrangement of occupational titles contained in Volume II of the Encyclopedia of Careers (EOC). It is based on the Career Area-Worker Trait Group structure of the Career Information System component of the Career Decision-Making (CDM) Program developed by Appalachia Educational Laboratory. (See CE 019 229 for an overview of the total CDM program.) This Career Area-Worker Trait Group structure is similar to the Area/Group structure of the Supplement to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT), Fourth Edition. The index itself is arranged in five columns: (1) numbers identifying the CDM Career Area-Worker Trait Group code; (2) Worker Trait Group title, DOT title, and EOC title; (3) the nine-digit DOT classification code; (4) the page number of the 1975 edition of the EOC on which information about the occupation is found; and (5) the page number of the 1972 edition of the EOC on which information about the occupation is found. (See CE 019 237 for a full discussion of the CDM Career Area-Worker Trait Group classification system.) (BM)
