Educational Media Personnel; A Handbook for Classification.
California Association for Educational Media and Technology, Concord.
A model classification for media paraprofessionals was constructed in order to establish salaries, personnel qualifications, useful training programs, administrative procedures, and standardized terminology. An analysis was made of such job elements as type of work, its difficulty and responsibility, supervisory responsibility, administrative responsibility, personal contacts, and working conditions. The classification plan was developed based on several levels of competence in each of four classes: media center clerical, film library clerical and technical, media preparation and reproduction, and media technical and maintenance. This resulted in 29 separate positions for which job descriptions were developed--including the title, basic job concept, duties and responsibilities, required knowledge or skills, experience, education, and desirable personal characteristics. Affirmative action, training programs, opportunities for promotion, and plans for developing media training curricula were considered, and brief recommendations for executing the plan were formulated.
