May 2012 Occupational Value Profiles for New and Emerging Occupations in the O*NET System: Summary

This report summarizes the development of Occupational Value Profiles (OVPs) for new occupations introduced with O*NET-SOC 2010. This work was undertaken due to the addition of new and emerging occupations and occupations identified within the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification. The goal of the development was to use updated O*NET data to develop OVPs consisting of six work values (e.g., Achievement, Autonomy, Recognition, Relationships, Support and Working Conditions) that characterize the nature of the work and conditions of the work environment. This report provides a summary of the expert rating procedures and analyses used to produce these new ratings.

June 2008 Second Generation Occupational Value Profiles for the O*NET System: Summary

This report summarizes the development of new Occupational Value Profiles (OVPs) for all occupations that are represented in O*NET-SOC classification. This work was undertaken due to changes in the O*NET database content and structure including 9 updates to the data, changes to the O*NET-SOC taxonomy, and the addition of new and emerging occupations. The goal of the development was to use updated O*NET data to develop OVPs consisting of six work values (e.g., Achievement, Autonomy, Recognition, Relationships, Support and Working Conditions) that characterize the nature of the work and conditions of the work environment. This report provides a summary of the expert rating procedures and analyses used to produce these new ratings. A more comprehensive study report will soon be available for download.

July 1999 Determining the Occupational Reinforcer Patterns for O*NET Occupational Units

This report focuses on the effort to generate work-related values information included in the Worker Characteristics domain of the O*NET Content Model (i.e., identifying features of employment which O*NET users may value or view as personally important).

1999 Development of the O*NET Computerized Work Importance Profiler

The purpose of this report is to describe and document the development and evaluation of the computerized work values measure. As a part of the O*NET Content Model, work values consist of features of employment that may be personally important to the individual.

1999 Development of the O*NET Paper-and-Pencil Work Importance Locator

The O*NET Work Importance Locator (WIL-P&P) was designed to be available as a stand-alone measure of work values. This report describes the development and evaluation process for the O*NET Work Importance Locator, a paper-and-pencil measure of work values.

1999 Linking Client Assessment Profiles to O*NET Occupational Profiles

This report describes the procedures used to compare and match a client's assessment profiles obtained from one or more of the O*NET Career Exploration Tools to O*NET-SOC occupation profiles. The report describes the corresponding algorithms developed for clients using a single O*NET tool and for clients using multiple tools.
