This booklet along with six others comprises a curriculum guide developed for adult education supervisors and teachers of undereducated workers or job seekers whose inability to develop the skills and obtain the knowledge necessary to meet the requirements of the working world are primarily due to a lack of competence in reading and math skills. This second booklet is a detailed report of the employers' survey which was done to obtain information concerning specific competencies needed for job success which could be meaningful in developing a comprehensive career-oriented adult education program for illiterate workers. (Booklets 4-7 contain the instructional programs developed in each of the following areas: Manufacturing, municipal government, health services, and construction.) Following an introduction, there is a section on procedure describing the development of the survey form and one covering the data analysis, which includes several tables and figures comparing the responses received from 47 supervisory personnel directly responsible for 1,000 low educational level workers in four categories of employment. The final section identifies important survey results including the following: Basic academic skills were necessary to retain and advance in employment; employers placed more emphasis on basic reading and writing skills than on math skills; and occupational skills were uniformly ranked as being important. The survey form is appended. (EM)
