Abstract:


The reliability and validity of the Transition-to-Work Inventory (TWI; Friedman et al., 1996), which is designed to diagnose worker/job fit problems for individuals with severe disabilities, was assessed. Worker/ job analyses were conducted using the TWI for 64 workers with severe disabilities, in 35 jobs at 11 different organizations. These analyses were performed by supported employment staff members and other job-content experts.

Worker's capabilities (as determined by the worker analysis) and the job's requirements (as determined by the job analysis) were directly compared to each other to determine potential 'target item' problems for the worker (i.e., items designating activities that the worker may have difficulties performing). Once target items had been determined, their importance to task performance was rated, and correlations between the items' importance to tasks and actual performance were computed.

Results indicated that TWI ratings of both worker capabilities and job requirements were reliable. In addition, the TWI was determined to have predictive validity. The more important the worker's target items were rated for task performance, the greater were the decreases in the worker's performance appraisal ratings. Results indicate that specific problems for worker performance can be assessed using this instrumentation.
