• 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 â€œWâ€ represent the median market wage and â€œPâ€ represent the job points. The wage line will be of the form W = aP + b where â€œaâ€ is the slope of the line and â€œbâ€ 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).

[NOTE: O*NET annual median wages tend to be lower than those encountered in actual business organizations. For actual market pricing data from a purchased survey from a reputable consulting firm would be preferred. Such a survey will also reflect differences in industry, organizational size, location, etc.]
