RESPONSE:

1. Explain with examples how the knowledge or skill requirements of a job drive the evaluation rating. Explain with example the role of the other compensable factors in the rating?

Often this is a four-step approach (internal, rating, external, consult) to determine salary grade (and exemption status in some organizations) (http://www.case.edu/finadmin/humres/comp/comp1012007.pdf).

Solution Summary

By example, this solution explains how the knowledge or skill requirements of a job drives the evaluation rating as well as the role of the other compensable factors in the rating.
