The HRM: Job Design and Analysis chapter is designed to address specific functions of human resource management such as job evaluation and satisfaction. Questions about human resource management roles and responsibilities are found in the first domain of the ORELA Business Education exam covering topics in business management, law and ethics.

Teachers can be tested on general concepts in English, math, science and social science as well as in content areas such as chemistry, health, music and physical education. Tests are also administered to beginning counselors, administrators and library specialists. Passing scores differ from test to test but are generally between 220 - 240.
