Summary

This paper describes the client assessment package being used in the Philadelphia Urban Saturation Work Program and discusses some of the issues that should be considered in designing and implementing employability assessment components of welfare-employment programs. The original objectives of the assessment component were the following: (1) to conduct an initial screen test to identify clients who are immediately job ready; and (2) to measure the competency levels, interests, and service needs of those who are not job ready. The assessment package has the following parts: (1) job readiness determination; (2) social services needs checklist; and (3) a written assessment test, which tests reading ability, mathematics ability, job search knowledge, and occupational interests. The benefits of a well designed assessment that is integrated with other parts of the welfare-employment system can be substantial--both to the program in terms of developing staff capabilities in case management and client assignment, and to the client in terms of establishing realistic personal goals.
