Refer to Table 1 in the McHugh text (2003) for some suggestions on the types of information you should consider for your analysis.

1. Region: Coverage region

2. Skill Level: Highest level of driver certification

3.Training10: Hours of training, as of 2010

4. Survey10_1: Satisfied with job, as of 2010

Organizational Assessment Study - Data Collection Plan

The population of interest is the total assigned drivers for the Huffman Trucking Company. The population is approximately 925 drivers. Data from the population will be collected to assess the effectiveness of Huffman's training program and drivers' job and policy satisfaction.

Iwamoto • Crews • Coe will collect three general types of data for the Huffman Trucking Organizational Assessment Study: demographic, performance, and assessment.
Demographic Data
Demographic data are collected to describe the population, identify subgroups in the population, and compare subgroups based on performance and assessment data.
The required demographic data should exist in company personnel files. The following data elements will be collected for this study:
1. Employee ID
2. Driver's gender
3. Region in which driver is based
4. Salary for 2010

Performance Data

Performance data are objective output data collected to determine the effectiveness of the Huffman Trucking training program.

Performance data may be existing, archival, or generated. A review of Huffman Trucking records shows that all performance measures are currently collected, so no data must be generated.

The study objectives and performance measures used to quantify them are shown in Table 1.

Assessment Data

Assessment data are subjective output data collected to determine driver perceptions regarding the job and Huffman Trucking Company policies.

Assessment data is typically existing, archival, or generated. For this study, there is no archival data. Data from 2009 exists due to a survey administered in that year. Data for 2010 must be generated. The same survey administered in 2009 will generate 2010 data.
The study objectives and performance measures used to quantify them are shown in Table 2.
