This report is a description of the instrumentation, methodology, and sample obtained for the final phase of the study concerned with the Occupational Inventory Management Specialist. Inventory managers were asked to keep a Daily Activity Log for five days and to record the range of activities and interaction with others in the process of accomplishing their work. Preliminary information gathered was summarized as a basis for decisions as to the selection of the aptitude tests, the construction of the biographical data questionnaire and task list, and the development of the criterion measures. Approximately 200 Blacks, 100 Mexican-Americans, and 300 Caucasians were tested, primarily at grade levels 9 and 11, the journeyman levels in inventory management after progress through the GS-5 and 7 training periods. The total testing time involved in the various measures to Inventory Management Specialists was approximately one and one-half days. The aptitude tests and Personal History Questionnaire took up the first day, and the work sample was administered on a half-day following. The results of the analyses of the data obtained for Inventory Management Specialists will be contained in a comprehensive report of the project. (Author/CK)
