Frequently Asked Questions Assessment Policy

How do I develop a customized rating scale for occupational questionnaires?

To develop customized ratings scales, you will need to determine how many proficiency levels you want for each item, create response alternatives for each grade level, and determine how each item will be scored.  Developing customized rating scales will require extensive subject matter expert involvement.

For more information on developing a customized rating scale, please refer to the Occupational Questionnaires PowerPoint at http://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/assessment-and-selection/occupational-questionnaires/developing-occupational-questionaires.pdf

If you have further questions regarding occupational questionnaires, please contact us at Assessment_Information@opm.gov.
