Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ. Center for Occupational and Professional Assessment.
Results of a job analysis for the position of entry-level health services administrator (HSA) are presented. The following products of the study are presented: a list of 132 tasks grouped into 10 job dimensions (e.g., policy direction, financial management), ratings of the importance of each task at entry-level, a list of 39 qualifications, including 21 areas of knowledge and 18 skills or abilities, ratings of the level of expertise required in each qualification for competent entry-level performance of the tasks in each job dimension, and 159 competency statements. The job analysis was based on the recommendations of an advisory committee of nine experts in health services administration. After a preliminary list of HSA tasks and qualifications was developed, the experts independently rated the importance of each task. The experts then discussed their opinions at a meeting, attempting to resolve any important disagreements. Independent ratings were again obtained to serve as the basis for the role delineation. Details of the study methodology are specified, and sample rating forms, instructions, and references are appended. It is suggested that the findings can be used for assessing job performance, personnel selection criteria, licensing and certification programs, training needs, self-assessment measures, training evaluation, and other purposes.
