AEL Career Decision-Making Program. Worker Trait Group Guide. First Edition.
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.
This Worker Trait Group Guide was designed for students as a basic reference in the Career Information System (CIS) component of the Career Decision-Making (CDM) program developed by the Appalachia Educational Laboratory. (See CE 019 229 for an overview of the total CDM program.) This guide contains descriptive information about twelve broad areas and sixty-six groups of occupations. The twelve areas are related to general work interests of people; the sixty-six groups are divisions of the twelve areas and represent clusters of occupations requiring similar worker characteristics, hence the title, Worker Trait Groups (WTG). The twelve WTG areas are the following: artistic, scientific, nature, authority, mechanical, industrial, business detail, persuasive, accommodating, humanitarian, social/business, and physical performing. Each worker trait group is divided into three parts: a description of the group; a list of worker qualifications; and a list of occupations in the group. Nine appendixes are provided to help the student better utilize the qualifications profile section in each Worker Trait Group. (A professional manual, CE 019 233, and student's guide, CE 019 239, explain how this document is used in conjunction with other materials in the CDM Career Information System component.) (BM)
