This piece constructs a rating scale for evaluating and predicting the employability of mentally, physically, emotionally and socially handicapped persons. Employability as defined in this piece measures a variety of concepts such as psychological work competence, probability of securing employment in a given labor market and adjustability or adaptation to a job for an extended period of time. The two types of criteria include internal criterion prior to the start of the program and external criterion, which is based on the observations of the work behavior of clients in the Vocational Adjustment Center Workshop. The rating scale is to be used by psychologists, vocational counselors and workshop foremen in rehabilitation settings. The Workshop section of the scale has been deemed to be a valid instrument and reasonably reliable.
