Special Announcement

We regret to announce that as of February 2019 the publisher of this product has temporarily  discontinued it.  Until further notice it is no longer available for purchase.  Our hope is that it may be reinstated at some point in the future and/or be re-offered in an online format.  However, we do not know when, or if, that will occur.  We apologize for the inconvenience that this creates for current users.  We will be glad to help you select an alternate product in the meantime – if a suitable substitute exists.  Please contact us for recommendations.


The MPFJ instrument is comprised of two forms. The Importance form of the MPJFI instrument helps assess the relative importance of 16 basic job functions for overall successful performance in a given higher-level position. The Ability form (sold separately) helps provide an assessment of the relative ability of the individual to perform the 16 job functions.

The Importance form may be useful in defining, classifying, and clarifying organizational structure, determining appropriate selection procedures, and job evaluation for higher-level management and professional positions. The Ability form provides self, peer, and supervisory assessments that may be used in an all-around assessment process, and also a procedure for identifying individual and group training needs. This form has an optional, simplified response format for ease and speed of administration.
