The Vocational Behavior Checklist.
Walls, Richard T.; And Others
The document addresses vocational skills--what they are and how they can be measured in a training class or on the job. It is explained in an introductory chapter that the checklist consists of a list of 344 vocationally relevant skill objectives specified in terms of conditions (antecedents or givens), behaviors, and standards. The objectives are classified and presented in Chapters 2 through 8 in seven categories: prevocational skills (job identification; object discrimination, sorting, and packing; paper folding and collating; tools and their use; housecleaning; food preparation; table and dishes; clothing care; child care; and academics); job seeking skills (job search, skill identification, and employer contact); interview skills (preparation for the interview and simulated interview); job related skills (travel to work, the job site, and general work rules); work performance skills (work station behavior, work situations, safety, and work evaluation); on the job social skills (interaction with coworkers and interaction with the supervisor); and union-financial-security skills (job information and benefits; hours and wages; and banking, budgeting, and taxes). Chapter 9 considers use of the checklist in developing individualized education programs, and individualized written rehabilitation programs. A final chapter presents reliability and validity data. Appendixes include skill summary sheets covering all objectives, an optional data sheet, and a skill objectives profile sheet. (SBH)
