Assessing the Training Needs of Personnel Specialists.
Phillips, R. Garland, Jr.
The document presents tools designed to assist supervisors of personnel specialists in the systematic assessment and identification of the training needs of individual personnel specialists in Federal agencies. The two major components are the questionnaires and the system of scoring and interpreting the questionnaires. The methodology will enable the employee development specialist to determine the training needs of six categories of personnel specialists: personnel management series, personnel staffing series, position classification series, salary and wage administration series, labor-management and employee relations series, and employee development series. There is a set of three different 45-item questionnaires for each type of specialist. The combined results of the three forms will yield a listing of areas of training needs. The questionnaires are designed to accommodate inputs from the specialist and the specialist's supervisor. The result is a readout of each individual's reaction to the questionnaire in terms of the appropriateness of training in areas of importance to personnel specialists. An example of a completed and scored questionnaire and its interpretation is given. Both manual and computer scoring are explained. (Author/EC)
