Occupational Aptitude Patterns Map: Development and Implications for a Theory of Job Aptitude Requirements.
Gottfredson, Linda S.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v29 n2 p254-91 Oct 1986
United States Employment Service data on the cognitive and noncognitive aptitude requirements of different occupations were used to create an occupational classification--the Occupational Aptitude Patterns (OAP) Map. Thirteen job clusters are arrayed according to major differences in overall intellectual difficulty level and in functional focus (field) of work activities. Intelligence, cognitive factors, and job tasks are salient. (Author/KS)
