Abstract

A comprehensive performance model for express coach drivers was used as the basis for identifying the abilities that could be used as potential predictors in the selection of
express coach drivers. The first part of the presentation will describe the job analysis techniques that were used to collect information from job incumbents and supervisors. These techniques included a structured interview, observation, and questionnaire. The information collected was compared with the content model available in the O*NET Occupational Information Network. The job analysis revealed that express coach driving is an exceedingly complex task that requires the utilisation of multiple skills and abilities. The second part of the presentation will focus on the way in which the performance model could be used as the basis for establishing the construct validity of a selection test battery.
