A Self-Evaluation Instrument for Work Performance and Support Needs
Brady, Michael P.; Rosenberg, Howard; Frain, Michael P.
Career Development for Exceptional Individuals, v31 n3 p175-185 2008
Involvement of students and adult employees into the decisions that affect their education and employment can improve their transition into supported employment. One means for increasing involvement into these decisions is to gain their input into performance evaluations and support needs. The "Job Observation and Behavior Scale: Opportunity for Self-Determination" is an assessment designed to obtain such input from the perspective of students preparing for, and employees participating in, supported employment. This article presents the role of the scale in obtaining student and employee input into their own work performance and support needs; it summarizes the development and technical properties of the instrument; and it describes how this instrument can promote the self-determination of students and adult employees with disabilities. (Contains 6 tables.)
