  • Use O*NET to identify the annual median market wage for each of the jobs.
  • Using Excel, SPSS, another statistical program, or calculation by hand, determine the equation to construct a wage line representing the relationship between job points and annual median market wage. Let “W” represent the median market wage and “P” represent the job points. The wage line will be of the form W = aP + b where “a” is the slope of the line and “b” is the constant (intercept).
  • Using a total point range of 0-1600, identify 8 wage grades of 200 points each. Label the wage grades W1, W2, etc., up to W8.
  • Identify the wage grades for the 10 jobs identified above. Then, slot the following 5 jobs based on their point value. For each of the 5 jobs, (1) identify the wage grade and (2) calculate the estimated median market wage using the wage line equation from part (b).
