O*NET® Questionnaires

Generic Questionnaires

Generic, customizable forms of the questionnaires used in the O*NET Data Collection Program are provided below. These questionnaires can be used as a starting point to collect occupational data in support of a wide range of economic/workforce investment activities and human resource management functions. The questionnaires may be completed by job incumbents, job analysts, or other subject matter experts.

You may find it useful to modify them to meet your particular needs by adding questions and scales to the instruments or other types of survey instruments. It is recommended, however, that you carefully consider the deletion of questions from the questionnaire because each questionnaire has been developed to represent particular domains of information (e.g., skills, knowledges, abilities).

Generic questionnaire covers can be easily customized with company names and logos. These generic questionnaires are provided in MS Word 97 and PDF formats.
