This effort supports the research and development work for the Job Sets for Efficiency in Recruiting and Training JSERT concept. The objective of the project was accomplished in two ways 1 by using a paper-and-pencil job analysis questionnaire and developing a PC-based technology to group similar jobs or to quantify the similaritydissimilarity of already grouped jobs, and 2 by modifying existing synthetic validation methods to identify the most reasonable test or tests for classificationplacement decisions.
