Factor 1: Educational/Experience Requirements of the Job

Level 9 - 1800 Points: A combination of education and experience equivalent to a Level 9 as indicated by the Equivalencies Chart, when permitted by the Minimum Acceptable Qualifications.

Factor 2: Complexity and Technical Mastery

Level 4 - 370 Points: In addition to considerable skill in oral and written communication, the ability to make basic mathematical calculations, the ability to understand and follow instructions, knowledge of moderately complex or other work procedures, and the ability to work independently and coordinate a variety of activities and events, the job requires specific professional skills and/or skills in managing a wide variety of complex processes.

Factor 3: Responsibility for the Work of Others

Level 5 - 180 Points: Supervision and training of moderate numbers of student and/or part-time or temporary workers may be required where the nature of supervision is largely confined to scheduling work, assigning tasks, and reviewing completed work. Supervision at this level may also involve directing the work assignments of a small number of permanent, full-time employees. Supervisory tasks include providing substantial input into the process of screening and hiring employees and providing performance information for other supervisors to use as part of the employee evaluation processes. Supervisory duties typically involve a small but significant portion of work day activities.

Factor 4: Guidelines

Level 3 - 220 Points: The work involves carrying out a group of procedures using the general methods and desired results indicated by the supervisor. Typically, standard operating procedures, handbooks, and/or reference manuals exist for most procedures, but the incumbent must select from the most appropriate of several guidelines, and make minor adjustments to methods. The incumbent uses judgment in interpreting and adapting guidelines such as University policies, regulations, precedents, and work directions for application to specific cases or problems. The incumbent makes decisions regarding most deviations from the guidelines but major deviations from guidelines are referred to the supervisor. Assignments are related in function and objective, but processes, procedures, or software varies from one assignment to another. Based on assignment, incumbents use diverse but conventional methods, techniques, or approaches. Jobs at this level may perform work that is moderately complex, but normally performed within a fairly narrow and specific functional area.

Factor 5: Contacts

Level 5 - 345 Points: Interactions with others are somewhat unstructured. The purpose may be to influence or motivate others, to obtain information, or to control situations and resolve problems. Interactions may be with individuals or groups of coworkers, students, or the general public, and may be moderately unstructured, and may involve persons who hold differing goals and objectives. Individuals at this level often act as a liaison between groups with a focus on solving particular unstructured problems.

Factor 6: Work Impact

Level 3 - 300 Points: Work activities normally address conventional problems or situations with established methods to supply other employees with information, services, or products they use to perform their work. Work products or services facilitate the work of other employees and directly affects the ability of other employees to timely complete specific tasks or processes. Work activities may affect the quality of services provided to moderate numbers of employees, students, or the public, but the services, information, or products provided have relatively minor effects on the welfare of the affected groups.

Factor 7: Physical Effort and Work Environment

Level 1 - 25 Points: The work environment consists of exposure to physical conditions typical of a normal office environment. Most of the job is performed while sitting, although the work may require occasional standing or walking and/or the lifting and carrying of small objects.
