Each factor is divided into several levels and each level carries a number of points. As factor levels are selected, the weighting of each factor in the overall evaluation is adjusted dynamically to properly reflect the characteristics of the job being assessed. The Jobscore computer program carries out this process.

The levels for the factor Proficiency are shown overleaf by way of example. This factor has ten levels and the Jobscore system gives a detailed description of each level.
