Position Analysis in Education. Team Project.
Boccuzzi, Anthony V.; And Others
The purpose of this study is to investigate the applicability of position analysis to administrative assignments in education, and to ascertain criteria to be used in adapting position analysis to public education. Position analysis techniques are used to determine the relative worth of jobs in an organization by placing their scope of responsibility in a common frame of reference, thereby establishing equitable remuneration procedures. Chapter 1, the introduction, lists the potential benefits of position analysis and its possible applications in an educational context. In chapter 2, a literature review identifies aspects of organizations common to both the public and private sectors. Pertinent literature relating to the history of position analysis is also reviewed, as well as literature about position analysis in government, business, and education. An overview follows of the four major position analysis systems, along with a survey of commercially available systems. The information derived from these sources provides the basis for the following analyses in chapter 3: (1) a comparison of the distinctive features of public and private sector organizations; (2) analysis of the impact of position analysis on organizations; (3) an evaluation of the four generic position analysis systems measured against identified implementation criteria; and (4) a comparative analysis of the four systems of position analysis in relation to purposes of organizational development. Findings are reported in chapter 4, including a summary of the advantages and disadvantages of the four major position analysis systems: ranking, classification, point system, and factor comparison system. Three appendixes provide illustrative documentation for the study, and footnotes and a bibliography are included. (TE)
