Abstract:

The Navy Job Analysis Questionnaire for enlisted personnel was developed to expand traditional job inventory methods to include more explicit and comprehensive information about social interactions. Results of the administration of the questionnaire to naval personnel in 25 ratings at apprentice, journeyman, and master levels suggest that inclusion of social information in job analysis does make a difference. Clustering of naval ratings based on the inclusion of social tasks differs from clustering based on traditional nonsocial task inventories, although there is considerable overlap. Also, social task items alone, collapsed into scales, or in conjunction with nonsocial tasks can be used to predict grade levels high enough to be of practical significance. Keywords Task analysis, Social interaction, Social task, Clustering ratings or occupations, Validity generalization.
