Work samples are job tasks used as a diagnostic tool in the evaluation of vocational rehabilitation clients. The manual was developed to provide a standardized format for the construction, administration, and interpretation of necessary information from work sample assessment techniques used by vocational evaluators. The outline is divided into seven sections: introduction (title, assessment description, job listing, and related validity); instructions to the evaluator (prerequisites, work sample conditions, administration equipment, and setup and breakdown); administration (client orientation, and instruction and demonstration); scoring (technique, tables, forms, description of norm group, norming method, and reliability); insights; construction (diagrams and/or photographs, materials list, and assembly instructions); and references and appendix. Each section discusses what type of information should be included within a specified topic and in what order it should be presented. Two different examples using the format of the work sample manual are given as a guide: Hurley Upholstery Job Samples, and The Order Picking Work Sample. (Author/EC)
