dc.description.abstract Structured methods of job analysis have traditionally been based upon theories of job performance that describe work in terms of discrete dimensions of behaviors, such as work output, relations with others, etc. Recent job analysis research has sought to reduce the effort of a traditional structured job analysis by reducing the demands placed upon the rater providing job analysis information. The Job Element Inventory (JEI) is one such structured job analysis inventory which seeks to reduce the effort in the job analysis process while assessing jobs through a priori theories of work activities. Early research has shown that the JEI has many desirable properties, though the replicability of its putative structure has not been addressed. This research employed confirmatory factor analysis methods designed to assess the replicability of the structure of the JEI in many different samples of data. Results indicate that the JEI's structure was recoverable, with minor modifications, across several disparate jobs. These results were consonant with popular theories of work behavior. Implications for future applications of the JEI are discussed.
