This five-section symposium report includes 22 papers assessing the state-of-the-art in occupational research. Section 1, Occupational Analysis, Structure, and Methods, contains four papers that discuss: the Air Force Occupational Research project, methodologies in job analysis, evaluation, structures and requirements, career development, personnel utilization, and job satisfaction; task statements preparation, administration, and interpretation to clarify skills and relate them to functional job requirements; clusters of work tasks for the military; and the Position Analysis questionnaire attempting to qualify job descriptions and data. The six papers in section 2, Career Development, examine: congruence theory, theories of decision-making during career development, theoretical models, personal value systems of managers and administrators, and career motivation in the Navy. The five papers in section 3, Organizational Effectiveness, focus on research methodologies in monitoring and measuring organizational effectiveness. In section 4, Motivation and Work, the three papers present the overview, current perspectives, and a suggested approach for a research model for measuring motivation. In section 5, Measurement and Prediction, the four papers discuss: biological psychology and human performance using brain wave research; historical research analysis procedures, personnel selection and placement decisions by computerized ability testing, and measurement of intellectual competence.
