Is an analytical, factor-based method of job evaluation. Under a points-rating scheme, jobs are scored under a number of different job characteristics or factors. The latter might include: skill, effort, know-how, level of responsibility, working conditions, and decision-making. The total score for the job across all factors determines where it will be placed in a graded pay structure. Points rating is the most common form of analytical job evaluation used in the UK.
