Principles of Supervision
Principles of Supervision can be used as a study resource, for professional development, or to earn college credit by passing a DSST™ exam (multiple-choice examination). Each college sets its own credit-granting policies for the exam, so check with your college admissions office, test center, or academic adviser before taking the test.

In the workplace, supervision consists of the interlocking functions of organizing, planning, controlling, and managing an organization’s resources in order to achieve the organization’s objectives. Issues such as planning, organization, directing and motivating personnel, and managing the workplace environment are a supervisor’s responsibilities.
This course covers topics such as the roles and responsibilities of the supervisor–planning, organization, and staffing; directing at the supervisory level; legal issues; stress management; union environments; and quality concerns.
Principles of Supervision
“The five steps in teaching an employee new skills are preparation, explanation, showing, observation and supervision.”
Supervision is an act or instance of directing, managing, or oversight.*
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO STUDY WITH DSSTPREP?
The answer to this is entirely up to you. You may choose to go over one section of material over and over until you have filled the progress bar up to 100% for just that section and then move onto the next section. However, this can be a bit boring, so we recommend that you get to feeling comfortable with one section, answering the questions several times, and then study the next section. If you open several sessions at a time, the DSSTPrep program will mix and scramble the order of the questions.
DSSTPrep’s sessions of study are broken into manageable numbers of questions. If a section of material is large, we will have it presented in a couple of sessions, i.e., parts 1 & 2. This is done to keep you from becoming too fatigued when you sit down to study one section.
When you complete a section of questions, use the ‘repeat missed questions’ button and go back and answer those questions again. You are more likely to remember the answers the next time you study if you review those questions right away.
