Assignment 09

This is a short guide to help you construct your assessment activities. It contains information about the different assessment criteria and some hints and tips on what to include for each of those criteria. The guidance also includes some examples you could use to improve your assessment.

REMEMBER: All reference sources should be acknowledged correctly and a bibliography provided where appropriate (these should be excluded from the word count).

You should become familiar with the use of command verbs within your assessment brief. These will give you a clear indication of the type of information that you need to submit in order to meet the assessment criteria.

Assessment guidance

Activity

Write a report of approximately 1500 words that covers the areas below.

  • Explains the principles (reasons for) and purpose (what it can be used for) of a job analysis.

Assessment criterion: 1.1 Explain the principles and purpose of job analysis.

Begin your report by explaining what a job analysis is. What purpose does it have in an organisation? Give some core reasons how it informs other HR activities such as pay and grading, training and development and compiling a job and person specification. These areas and more were covered initially in Lesson one of Week one.

  • Compares and contrasts THREE different methods of job analysis.

Assessment criterion: 1.2 Compare and contrast different methods of job analysis

You are required to compare and contrast THREE different methods of job analysis. In Lesson two Week one, you looked at four job analysis methods – Interviews, Observation, Questionnaires and Work diaries/log books. You are required to pick THREE of these methods and compare all three (find the similarities) and then contrast all three methods (find the differences). Do not confuse this with giving the advantages and disadvantages of each method.

  • Produce a plan

Assessment criterion: 2.1 Develop a plan to undertake a job analysis

You will need to carry out an actual job analysis. To complete this task you should outline how you intend to plan for and carry out a job analysis for a role in your organisation or the job of one of your peers. This plan should be clear on the steps you will take before, during and after the job analysis and include timeframes, methods, and the individuals involved – job holder, line manager etc. You could use a Gantt chart here to document all the individual steps such as writing questions, contacting people involved and their line managers, booking in an observation, interview etc.

Assessment criterion: 2.2 Undertake a job analysis

You will now carry out your plan, so keep all of your notes and supporting documents (including copies of any email exchanges) as you will need to submit these in your appendix as evidence for the data you collected. For example, for an interview; what questions will you ask and what responses did you get? Or, have you decided to carry out an observation of the job holder? If you also reviewed a current job description you should include this in your appendix. Did you also meet with the Line Manager first? You should make notes of that conversation and include these also as part of your evidence. If you asked the job holder to complete a work/log book – the results should be included in your appendix.

  1. These appendices and the supporting evidence do not count towards your word count.
  • Make realistic and actionable recommendations

Assessment criterion: 2.3 Interpret and present the results of the job analysis, making recommendations to meet organisational requirements.

Summarise your findings (conclusions) from your job analysis investigation. This summary should reflect on what you have found out and what this might mean moving forward, for example, does the job description adequately reflect the role? Did you find any changes to what is included in the role and to what extent? Were there any issues with motivation or job engagement? Were there any additional tasks, duties or responsibilities observed or uncovered by way of an interview or questionnaire?

Finally, make realistic and actionable recommendations of what should be included in the job description and person specification, as well as any learning & development needs or safety measures that might need to be considered to meet organisation requirements.
