Assessing Employee Skills.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on assessing employee skills. "Bridging the Training Gap: Identifying Work Place Transferable Skills Needs in Manufacturing Organizations in East Central Minnesota" (K. Peter Kuchinke, James M. Brown, Howie Anderson, Joe Hobson) reports a study of a workplace education program in rural Minnesota that examined the following: nature of the study organizations' training needs, expectations of production-level trainees, experiences of the program staff, and the nature of public-private collaboration. A diagnostic study of the learning network and work performed in a Dutch service organization is detailed in "Diagnosing the Learning Network in a Changing Organization" (Ferd J. Van der Krogt). "Employee Efficacy Generalization of Basic Mathematics Skills" (Alan J. Coleman, Patricia E. Boverie) discusses a quasi-experimental study demonstrating that, as individuals are given the opportunity to develop their basic mathematics skills, their perceptions of their own ability for skills associated with personal and work-related daily activities increase as well. The process used to develop a writing test for technical writers in a high-technology company is described in "A Case Study of the Feasibility of Developing a Writing Test for Hiring Technical Writers and Instructional Designers" (Rosemarie J. Park). (MN)
