Level 3 - 897 Points: Regular but limited supervision and training of small numbers of student or part-time workers is required where the nature of supervision is largely confined to scheduling work and/or assigning tasks. Supervision at this level may also involve directing the work assignments of one or more full-time employees, but supervision typically does not include a full range of supervisory responsibilities, and the supervisory duties typically do not consume a large portion of the work day.

Factor 3: Skill, Complexity, and Technical Mastery

Level 6.5 - 2050 Points: Skill, complexity, and technical mastery is somewhat above requirements for a level at 1900, but somewhat below the skill, complexity, and technical mastery requirements at level 2200.

Factor 4: Budgetary Control
