The problem was to adapt techniques of position analysis for use with administrative personnel in public school systems. This study has been primarily concerned with the identification of the functions and responsibilities of school administrative personnel and with the development of an adequate and appropriate conceptual framework for analysis of their positions. Materials and techniques of personnel management in business and industry, government, and education have been drawn upon: 1) to identify the components and the analysis procedures of organization planning, staffing, and wise compensation structure, and 2) to apply and adapt procedures of position description, position analysis, and position evaluation for use with school administrative personnel. Carefully selected and adapted samples and illustrations have been provided, culminating in a model plan for position evaluation employing a combination of the factor comparison and point systems of position description and analysis.
