Improving Manpower Utilization: The "Rehabilitation Task Performance Evaluation Scale." Wisconsin Studies in Vocational Rehabilitation.
Wright, George N.; Fraser, Robert T.
Intended for the training and use of state divisions of vocational rehabilitation (DVR) line supervisors, a "Rehabilitation Task Performance Evaluation Scale" is included along with instructions for its administration and uses. The Scale, constructed from an inventory of 294 rehabilitation job tasks, is used for periodic evaluations of the quality and extent of staff performance. Quality is defined as the accuracy, thoroughness, effectiveness, and efficiency of tasks performance. The following two fundamental ways of increasing personnel utilization are suggested: (1) the selective assignment of tasks accoring to the worker's present level and types of competency; and (2) the systematic development of the worker's value to the organization by increasing task-qualifications. Information is provided on how to obtain individualized performance profiles for counselors, supervisors, paraprofessional workers and aides, as well as on the education needed to perform each of the many basic tasks.
