Abstract:

The Job Performance Measurement JPM data needs to be interpreted in terms of job competency levels. The literature on determining standards for job competency levels was reviewed. Various item-based methods i.e., Nedelsky, Angoff, Ebel, and Jaeger methods and examinee-based methods i.e., contrasting groups and borderline groups methods were reviewed and compared. An examinee- based method using archival JPM proficiency ratings, by work sample test administrators, was proposed. An item-based method using subject matter experts and normative data was proposed. Models of utility, used to evaluate the consequences of standards, were discussed. An annotated bibliography of the standard setting literature was included as an appendix.
