Johnson, Marion T.; And Others
The document reports the methodology, processes, findings, and conclusions of a study relating individual capabilities of handicapped persons to job requirements. The three major objectives of the study are analyzed: development of procedures to identify patterns of human attributes required for job performance; identification of the potential development of work relevant human attributes for handicapped persons; and application of the procedures in three occupations (general secretary, automotive mechanic, and business data programmer) to assess the use of this type of procedure for handicapped persons. The manual covers the following topics: guidelines and analysis for identifying key job activities, guidelines and analysis for identifying key attributes, sample instruments, analysis of the three occupations, simulations of procedures used in the three occupations, profiles of key tasks by key attributes, profiles of the attributes of the handicapped population, and resources for developing attribute profiles.
