"Think Tank" Workshop in Work Evaluation: March 19-21, 1969.
Hoffman, Paul R., Ed.
A two-day workshop, conducted to study the different meanings of the concept of work evaluation, was participated in by representatives from rehabilitation facilities, work evaluation training programs, institutional organizations, and rehabilitation research and training centers. In addition, different types of patient populations were represented--physically handicapped, emotionally disturbed, mentally retarded, narcotic addict, penal offender, and culturally disadvantaged. Edited transcripts are provided of the proceedings, which were divided into three sessions which discussed the following areas: goals of work evaluation; scope and definition of work evaluation; and methods, models, and functions. A fourth session was left unstructured so that each group could choose its own subject area. Topics chosen were: ethics of work evaluation, the work evaluation process, and competencies of work evaluators. The main points of agreement reached during the workshop are summarized under the following topics: differentiation of processes, the work evaluation process, goals, scope, the work evaluator, and the client. A list of participants in the workshop is appended. (Author)
