This mixed method study explored the assessment-related skills and job duties that student affairs administrators expect from new employees as reflected in 1,759 job openings posted in 2008, of which seven job postings were specialist positions in outcomes-based assessment. The skills and du- ties required of these seven positions were primarily related to leadership, education, teamwork, and research. In the entire sample of job postings, the study found no differences in required assessment-related skills or job duties between public and private institutions or schools of various sizes. However, there were significant differences in requisite assessment skills and job duties among the various functional areas and among jobs with varying educational and experience requirements. Implications for institutions, graduate preparation programs, and professional development efforts are discussed.
