Statistics, Methods, and Decision Making


The Statistical Power of Moderated Multiple Regression for
Detecting Joint Dichotomous Moderators

Dimitri Liakhovitski, International Survey Research

Eugene F. Stone-Romero, University of Central Florida

Monte Carlo simulations were conducted to examine the effects of score reliability, effect size, sample size, and the proportion of cases in moderator-based subgroups on statistical power of Moderated Multiple Regression (MMR) for detecting joint dichotomous moderators.  The manipulated parameters had considerable main and interactive effects on MMR power.


The Statistical Power of Alternative Strategies for
Detecting Joint Dichotomous Moderators

Dimitri Liakhovitski, International Survey Research

Eugene F. Stone-Romero, University of Central Florida

James J. Jaccard, University at Albany-SUNY

Monte Carlo simulations were conducted to compare statistical power of Moderated Multiple Regression (MMR) and Jones (1968) procedure for detecting joint dichotomous moderators under conditions of heterogeneity of within-group error variances.  In most study conditions, Jones procedure only slightly outperformed MMR in terms of power.


Relative Importance of the Dimensions of Applicants Work Experience

Ann Arendell Adams, Rice University

Miguel A. Quiones, Rice University

A policy-capturing approach was employed to examine whether raters are sensitive to differences among job applicants on multiple dimensions of work experience.  Amount and type-based measures were most influential on decisions about five of six dependent variables.  Older applicants tended to receive lower ratings on all dependent variables.


Testing the Empirical Distinction Between Self-Efficacy,
Collective Efficacy, and Team Potency

Adam Meade, University of Georgia

Lillian T. Eby, University of Georgia

Self-efficacy, collective efficacy, and team potency are important predictors of team performance.  However, these constructs have been inconsistently measured and operationalized in previous research.  Confirmatory factor analysis illustrated that these constructs are empirically distinct, in addition to being theoretically distinct.  Implications for theory, research, and applied practice are discussed.


Mathematical and Theoretical Limits in the Search for Moderator Effects

William M. Rogers, Grand Valley State University

Much has been written of the difficulties in detecting moderator effects.  By deriving relationships among several important regression factors, and clarifying the nature of theoretical expectation, it is demonstrated that strong moderator effects are not being detected because they cannot mathematically exist at levels of predictability common in applied psychology.


An Application of Lightfoots Cross-Validation and
Internal Validation (CV*IV) Procedure

Brian Katz, HumRRO/George Washington University

Mary Ann Lightfoot, HumRRO

The present study tested Lightfoots cross-validation and internal validation (CV*IV) procedure for estimating cluster structures.  The CV*IV procedure was used to replicate a study which grouped entry-level Navy jobs using an exploratory clustering technique.  Differences in the results are examined in terms of the advantages of using a statistical clustering technique as opposed to an exploratory clustering procedure.


Analysis of Multitrait-Multimethod Data in Assessment Centers:
Methodological and Substantive Issues

Filip Lievens, University of Ghent, Belgium

James M. Conway, Central Connecticut State University

This study compares the performance of different SEM models applied to 24 assessment center MTMM matrices.  The correlated uniqueness model scored best in terms of fit and admissible solutions.  In this model dimension variance equaled exercise variance and was significantly influenced by number of dimensions, assessor type, and exercise similarity.


Effects of Advisor Agreement Trends and Background on Decision Making

Keith D. McCook, Louisiana State University

Timothy Buckley, U.S. Office of Personnel Management

The effects that ascending or descending conditions of agreement from advisors with different backgrounds have on participants advice-taking strategies were investigated.  Results indicated that people perceive advisors who agree with them early on and who are presented as more expert as more able, and take advice more from them.


Predicting Students Willingness to Join Unions:
Antiunion and Prounion Attitudes

David LaHuis, University of Connecticut

Steven Mellor, University of Connecticut

This study assessed the independence of antiunion and prounion attitudes in predicting students willingness to join unions (N = 1245).  Structural equation modeling results indicated that antiunion and prounion attitudes exhibited a moderate negative correlation and that both sets of attitudes significantly predicted willingness to join.


Policy Capturing: A Brief Tutorial

Lynda Aiman-Smith, North Carolina State University

Steven E. Scullen, North Carolina State University

Policy-capturing has been used in organizational research to determine what people find most important when they make decisions.  It has been difficult, however, for researchers to find advice on the proper approach to this research method.  This paper proposes a tutorial on designing, executing, interpreting, analyzing, and reporting policy-capturing research.


Establishing Anchors: An Evaluation of the Magnitude Estimation Technique

Anthony R. Paquin, Illinois Institute of Technology

Dana Moore, Illinois Institute of Technology/Ameritech

Maria L. Sanchez-Ku, Texas A & M University

The primary purpose of the study was to see if scale anchor values have changed over time.  Magnitude estimation was used to estimate scale values of 44 expressions of amount and 39 expressions of frequency.  Results were compared to Bass, Cascio, and OConnor (1974).  Significant differences and implications are discussed.


An Empirical Comparison of the Criterion-Related Validities of
Additive and Referent-Shift Operationalizations of Team Efficacy

Winfred E. Arthur, Texas A & M University

Maria L. Sanchez-Ku, Texas A & M University

Bryan Edwards, Texas A & M University

Dennis Gettman, U.S. Air Force Academy

Winston Bennett, Airforce Research Laboratory

The criterion-related validities of additive and referent-shift operationalizations of team efficacy were compared.  Data obtained from 63 dyadic teams trained to perform a complex perceptual motor skill task within a dyadic protocol showed that the referent-shift operationalization of team efficacy was a better predictor of team performance.


Are Goal Orientation and Self-Efficacy Different? A Validation of Scales

David Zweig, University of Waterloo

Jane Webster, University of Waterloo

This paper describes the development of an instrument to measure the three factors of goal orientation as well as computer learning self-efficacy.  The results of exploratory factor, reliability, and confirmatory factor analysis suggest that the instrument operationalizes three separate factors of goal orientation that are distinct from computer learning self-efficacy.


Expectations, Voice, and Outcome: Framing Effects on
Perceptions of Fairness Judgments

Zinta S. Byrne, Colorado State University

Deborah E. Rupp, University of West Florida

We examined the effects of framing, outcome favorability, and voice (2x2x2) on perceptions of procedural, interactional, and distributive justice, using data from 286 undergraduates.  A negative framing with an unfavorable out-

come resulted in lower judgments of procedural and interactional justice.  A main effect for outcome, and an unexpected framing by voice interaction was revealed for distributive justice.


Estimating the Internal Consistency of a Conceptually Multidimensional Scale

Mark E. Tubbs, University of Missouri-St Louis

Debra Gilin, University of Missouri-St. Louis

Amit Geva, University of Missouri-St. Louis

Although coefficient alpha was designed for use with unidimensional scales, a review of recent literature indicates that it is also routinely used with multidimensional scales.  It is suggested that the internal consistency of multidimensional scales should be based on within-subdimension correlations, rather than on both within and between-subdimension correlations, as is the case when alpha is used in that context.  An alternative, more appropriate for use with multidimensional measures, is described and empirically compared with alpha to demonstrate the differential influence of interdimensional covariation on the two indices.


Effect of Item Placement on Faking a Personality Measure

Lynn A. McFarland, Michigan State University

Ann Marie Ryan, Michigan State University

Aleks Ellis, Michigan State University

This study was conducted to determine if randomizing items that measure the same construct throughout a test, a procedure frequently followed with personality tests, results in less faking than when items are grouped together.  Results indicated that the grouped format was generally more fakable.  Additionally, scale reliabilities differed across formats.


Using Multifacet Rasch Analysis to Examine the Effectiveness of Rater Training

Casey Mulqueen, American Institutes for Research

David P. Baker, American Institutes for Research

P. Key Dismukes, NASA

Multifacet Rasch analysis was used to examine the effectiveness of rater training for individuals that are required to conduct end-of-training work performance evaluations.  The results are presented with emphasis on the additional information provided by this technique, and the relative advantages and disadvantages of this approach vis--vis other methods of analysis.


Modeling the Practical Effects of Applicant Reactions

Robert E. Ployhart, University of Maryland

Mark Ehrhart, University of Maryland

Research suggests improving applicant reactions can reduce subgroup test score differences but has not shown whether this will actually reduce adverse impact.  This Monte Carlo study suggests that across realistic levels of subgroup differences in test-taking motivation and selection ratios, enhancing test-taking motivation will not substantially reduce adverse impact.


A Meta-Analysis of Assessment Center Construct Validity

Marise Ph. Born, Vrije University-Amsterdam

Nanja J. Kolk, Vrije University-Amsterdam

Henk Van Der Flier, Vrije University-Amsterdam

The Assessment Center (AC) fails to demonstrate construct validity.  This study combines 25 AC construct validity studies into a meta-analysis to investigate whether efforts have resulted in improved construct validity.  Manipulations of AC attributes indeed result in better discriminant validity.  Convergent validity, however, is not affected.


Development and Preliminary Validation of a
Field Measure of Transactive Memory

Kyle Lewis, University of Texas at Austin

This study evaluated a field measure of transactive memory.  A 15-item measure was developed based on theory, and then preliminarily validated using statistical techniques.  Results provide evidence of a 3-factor structure (specialization, coordination, credibility), and a reliable measure.  Further, the measure was related to group communication, conflict (-), and performance.


Establishing Baserates for the Z3 and F2 Inappropriateness Indices

Steven R. Burnkrant, Virginia Tech

Robert J. Harvey, Virginia Tech

A simulation study was used to establish baserates for the Z3 and F2 inappropriateness indices for use with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.  Distortion estimates were unstable for theta values beyond 1.5 standard deviations, and neither index could distinguish between distortion rates of 25% or higher.


Biodata Item Attributes in Multiple Samples: Validity and Response Distortion

Sarah A. Stanley, University of Georgia

Janet E. Hecht, University of Georgia

Amy Montagliani, University of Georgia

Garnett S. Stokes, University of Georgia

Claudia R. Barroso, University of Georgia

O. Ragin Hause, University of Georgia

Maels (1991) taxonomy of biodata item attributes was examined.  Relationships between attributes and validity and attributes and response distortion were inconsistent across samples.  Results indicated that consistencies in validity were found only when criteria were divided into objective and subjective criteria.  Results for relationships with response distortion scales were mixed.


Modeling Performance Over Time

Michael J. Howard, Pennsylvania State University

Rick R. Jacobs, SHL

Traditional performance models take an implicitly static view of criteria.  Individual differences are assumed to have similar effects on performance independent of when criterion measures are taken.  This study uses multi-level modeling techniques to examine this issue.  Data suggest that validity coefficients change as individuals become proficient at a task.


A New Approach to Scoring Dynamic Decision-Making Performance on
High Fidelity Simulators: Reliability and Validity Issues

Gunnar Schrah, University of Illinois

Oleksandr Chernyshenko, University of Illinois

Michael R. Baumann, University of Illinois

Janet A. Sniezek, University of Illinois

Vadim Bulitko, University of Illinois

Scott Borton, University of Illinois

David C. Wilkins, University of Illinois

The increase in complexity of simulations creates a corresponding increase in the complexity of measuring individual performance.  This research describes the development of an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based performance measure utilized in the DC-TRAIN 2.0 Damage Control Simulator, and a methodology by which to validate it.


Approximating ANCOVA Using the Welch-Aspin and Alexander (A) Procedures

William T. Robinson, Tulane University

William P. Dunlap, Tulane University

It has been shown that the Type I error rates for standard ANOVA as well as ANCOVA procedures are inadequate in the presence of unequal subgroup error variances, particularly when sample sizes are unequal.  The Welch-Aspin ANOVA procedure is modified to perform ANCOVA and shown to outperform standard procedures.


Applying Confirmatory Cross-Validation to the Development of Biodata Scales

Andrew L. Solomonson, Irwing & Browning, Inc.

Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) represents a useful step in psychometric scale development, in which scale structure is cross-validated using CFA of independent data.  This study demonstrates an application of the process to rationally and factorially developed biodata scales.  Results are compared across scale types and implications for construct validity are discussed.


Work Related Attitudes of Naval Officers Before and After Retirement

Kenneth S. Shultz, California State University-San Bernardino

Mary Anne Taylor, Clemson University

Robert F. Morrison, Navy Personnel Research and Development Center

Prospective and retrospective accounts are typically used in cross-sectional empirical studies of retirement.  Unfortunately little is known about the accuracy of these accounts.  Therefore, in the present study their consistency was assessed using data from 672 military retirees.  We found mixed evidence for the accuracy of these attitudes across time.


An Investigation of High Technology Survey Methods at Hewlett-Packard

Jennifer H. Frame, Colorado State University

James C. Beaty, Colorado State University

Research investigating the pros and cons of email and web-based survey techniques has not typically been directly applicable to surveys conducted on employees within organizations.  This study directly compared paper, email, and

web-based survey methodologies within an organization and found better response rates, speed, and satisfaction with electronic methods.


Ceilings on Validity: Exploring Potential Causes and Solutions

Jerel Slaughter, Bowling Green State University

The validity ceiling has long been recognized as a frustrating problem for I-O psychologists.  This paper reviews four categories of potential contributors to this problem: Criterion issues, predictor issues, situation effects, and methodological considerations.  Suggestions for research to explore potential solutions relevant to each category are discussed.


Person Negativity Bias? Commitment to People Versus
Objects within Escalation Dilemmas

Donald E. Conlon, Michigan State University

Henry Moon, Michigan State University

Within negatively framed situations, decision makers were found to be less committed to individuals than they were to objects.  Also, an interaction was found wherein individuals were less committed to than objects within low threat (gravity) situations.  These results are contrary to a person positivity bias found in the literature.


Interrater Agreement Reconsidered: The Role of Maximum Possible Variance

Reagan D. Brown, Western Kentucky University

Indices of interrater agreement do not adjust for the fact that a given variance is not equally meaningful across all scale means.  The concept of maximum possible variance at a scale mean is introduced along with revised formulas that allow for computation of interrater agreement without systematic over or underestimation.

This study examined the bias of the RBNL (1991) meta-analytic procedure using two realistic artifact distributions, and varied the percentage of reliability information, N, and K.  Results revealed relatively little bias for most situations, however, when r was large and K was small, large amount of bias were observed.


Information Search and Creative Problem Solving:

Effects of Personal Involvement

Jody J. Illies, University of Nebraska-Omaha

Roni Reiter-Palmon, University of Nebraska-Omaha

Research explored how to increase creative problem solving through information search behaviors and personal involvement.  Results revealed that high involvement due to the relevancy of a problem's outcome was beneficial to information search behaviors and creative problem solving whereas high involvement resulting from engagement of participants' values was detrimental.


The Effects of Stress on Creative Problem Solving

Lisa M. Kobe, University of Nebraska-Omaha

Roni Reiter-Palmon, University of Nebraska-Omaha

Little is known about the influence of stress on creative problem solving despite the expectation of creative solutions in today's stressful work environment.  Stress was found to be detrimental to the quantity but not the quality of solutions produced.

Job Analysis, Performance, Training, and Pay


The Effectiveness of Computer-Assisted-Instruction for
Adult Learners: A Meta-Analysis

Scott Shadrick, Western Kentucky University

A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the effects of Computer-Assisted-Instruction (CAI) on learning outcomes for adults.  Overall CAI was significantly more effective than traditional instruction (avg. r  = .119).  Moderator analysis showed learning gains could be attributed to poor design quality.  The effectiveness of CAI after controlling for design quality was 0.045.


The Effect of Organizational Factors on Intended Rating Behavior

Laura E. Thomas Davis, Jeanneret & Associates, Inc.

A conceptual model was developed to examine the relationship between intended rating behavior and rater perceptions of the appraisal process.  Results indicated that perceptions of appraisal characteristics; the purpose of the appraisal; rewards, consequences, and trust in the system: the supervisor-subordinate relationship; and organizational variables significantly influenced intended rating behavior.


Rating Effects Based on Candidate Race and Interview Panel Composition

Katherine A. Jackson, Center for Business & Economic Development

John G. Veres, Center for Business & Economic Development

Assessor rating panels of varying racial compositions were formed to assess candidates videotaped responses.  It was expected that (a) assessors would give more favorable ratings to candidates of the same race as the assessor and (b) interview scores would differ as a function of racial composition of the panel.


Employee and Supervisor Perceptions of a Performance Appraisal System

David Mohr, Bowling Green State University

Shahnaz Aziz, Bowling Green State University

Jerel Slaughter, Bowling Green State University

Derek A. Steinbrenner, Bowling Green State University

Michael Zickar, Bowling Green State University

Employee and supervisor attitudes toward components of a performance appraisal system were measured using a scale developed for this study.  Unidimensional scales measuring these attitudes predicted satisfaction with the system and, to a limited extent, supervisor compliance with the performance appraisal format.


The RCMP Promotion System: Performance Appraisal of
Behavior-Based Competencies

Victor M. Catano, Saint Mary's University

Catherine Campbell, Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Wendy Darr, Saint Mary's University

A new performance appraisal system, developed for promotions in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, fairly differentiated among candidates.  Members (N=6500) illustrated their performance on core competencies with behavioral examples.  Supervisors and then review boards used a BARS procedure to reliably rate performance.  Both candidates and supervisors supported the system.


g-Based Optimal Pairing Strategies in a Team Training Protocol

Winfred E. Arthur, Texas A & M University

Travis C. Tubre, Texas A & M University

Amber Hanson, Texas A & M University

Winston Bennett, Air Force Research Laboratory

Cognitive ability (g) was used, on an a priori basis, to create high-, low-, and mixed-ability teams that were trained to perform a complex perceptual motor skill task within a dyadic protocol.  Performance differences at the team level were examined as a function of team ability.


Effects of Upward Ratings on Subsequent Downward Ratings

Denise Haeggberg, Ohio University

Peter Y. Chen, Liberty Mutual Research Center

The effects of upward ratings on subsequent downward ratings under anonymous and non-anonymous conditions were investigated in a team decision-making simulation.  It was found that leaders reciprocated the upward ratings.  Furthermore, the reciprocation of the upward ratings was pervasive under the non-anonymous condition, compared to that under the anonymous condition.


Job Task Analysis: An IRT Application

Betty A. Bergstrom, Computer Adaptive Technologies

David Blitz, Computer Adaptive Technologies

Job task analyses provide a link between performance on the job and examination content.  This paper describes a methodology that utilizes item response theory to place job task analysis data on an equal interval scale that allows for quantitative comparisons between tasks and provides a method for quantifying a test blueprint.


An Examination of the Stability of Team Performance

Ronald S. Landis, Tulane University

Studies of the stability of individual task performance over repeated trials have generally produced the phenomenon known as the superdiagonal stability, or simplex, matrix.  Using archival performance data from professional basketball teams, the current study demonstrates that the superdiagonal matrix also exists, in a modified state, at the team level.


The Personality-Contextual Performance Relationship in
Strong Versus Weak Situations

James C. Beaty, Colorado State University

Jeanette N. Cleveland, Colorado State University

Kevin R. Murphy, Colorado State University

This study investigated the extent to which the strength of behavioral cues for task and contextual performance moderate the relationship between personality and contextual performance.  Results from a laboratory and field study indicated that personality-contextual performance correlations varied across situations that had different cues and expectations for performance.


Defining Dimensions of Performance for Special Forces Soldiers

Tara D. Carpenter, U.S. Army Research Institute

Michelle M. Zazanis, U.S. Army Research Institute

Robert N. Kilcullen, U.S. Army Research Institute

Performance ratings for Special Forces soldiers were analyzed to minimize statistical overlap in the performance dimensions.  Ratings were grouped using factor analysis, then cluster analysis was used to further identify subgroups.  Results suggest a six-dimension solution: Reasoning Skills, Facility with Others, General Soldiering, Effort, Physical Fitness, and Intercultural Skills.


Decoupling Elements of Negative Feedback: Credibility,
Accuracy and Interactional Justice

Marcus M. Stewart, University of Georgia

Quinetta M. Roberson, Cornell University

Contrary to the predictions of goal and control theories, empirical investigations of negative feedback suggest that recipients regard negative feedback as inaccurate and experience decreased motivation as a result.  The present field study establishes a link between negative feedback and behavior and highlights the roles of source credibility, feedback accuracy, and interactional justice in the feedback process.


Contrast Versus Assimilation Effects: Rating Versus
Not Rating Previous Performance?

Janice Bajor, Wayne State University

Sebastiano A. Fisicaro, Wayne State University

Research has suggested that, in rating current job performance, contrast effects occur if previous performance was viewed and rated, whereas assimilation effects occur if previous performance was viewed but not rated.  The present investigation obtained evidence for contrast, but not assimilation effects.  A novel hypothesis regarding context effects is presented.


Performance Evaluation: Assimilation Effects,
Rater Self-Esteem, and Rating Experience

Karen Jagatic, Wayne State University

Sebastiano A. Fisicaro, Wayne State University

Participants received information regarding a lecturer's previous performance (good or poor) prior to viewing and rating a videotape of an average lecture.  Participants completed measures of self-esteem and rating experience.  Results revealed assimilation effects for both performance conditions, which decreased as self-esteem increased, but did not vary with rating experience.


Designing Diversity Training: Influence of
Group Composition and Trainee Experience

Loriann Roberson, Arizona State University

Carol T. Kulik, Arizona State University

Molly Pepper, Arizona State University

Despite the popularity of diversity training in corporate America, the lack of systematic evaluation has left managers with little guidance on how to design programs.  This research examines how group demographics and trainee experience interact to enhance diversity training.  Findings indicate that heterogeneous groups are not essential to effective training.


Self-Ratings in Training Programs: Level of Performance and Feedback

Sally A. Carless, Monash University

Geoff P. Roberts-Thompson, Monash University

This study examined level of agreement (mean differences and correlations) between self, peer and training staff ratings; accuracy of ratings by (a) comparing the mean ratings of outstanding, average and below-average performers, and (b) correlating difference scores with a measure of performance; and the effects of negative feedback on self-perceptions.


The Quality-Quantity Relationship: A Multidimensional Approach

Miriam T. Nelson, Assessment Solutions, Inc.

Clifford R. Jay, Assessment Solutions, Inc.

Seymour Adler, Assessment Solutions, Inc.


The relationship between customer service quality and productivity measures of performance was analyzed.  Calls for 362 customer service representatives of a cellular phone company were monitored.  A positive relationship was found between communication skills and quantity, and a tradeoff was found between problem-solving focus and quantity.


Applying the Social Relations Model to Evaluations in Team Settings

Chet Robie, University of Houston

Gary J. Greguras, Louisiana State University

Marise Ph. Born, Vrije University-Amsterdam

We used Kennys (1994) social relations model (SRM) to examine self and peer performance evaluations in team settings.  The social relations model is described and then used to analyze a data set from 14 groups of students (N = 59) who completed performance ratings of themselves and the other group members.


A Comparison of Managerial Effectiveness Models Across Four Rating Sources

Jeffrey D. Facteau, Auburn University

Wendy Gradwohl Smith, Auburn University

Between-source disagreements in performance ratings may occur when different rater groups define effectiveness differently.  We examined the performance models used by self, peer, superior, and subordinate raters and found important differences in the effectiveness models they employed.  We discuss the implications of our results for both theory and practice.


Individual Difference Variables as Predictors of Training Motivation

Michael S. Cole, Auburn University

Wendy Gradwohl Smith, Auburn University

Stanley G. Harris, Auburn University

Research suggests the need to identify a larger set of individual differences that predict training motivation.  Using a change-oriented measure of training motivation, results showed that learning goal orientation and positive affectivity predicted training motivation.  In addition, leadership self-schema explained incremental variance in training motivation after other variables were controlled.


Interdisciplinary Contributions to Strategic Work Modeling

Matthew Barney, Motorola University

An approach based on Schippmanns (1999) Cheshire Strategic Job Modeling technique is proposed as an alternative to traditional job analysis or competency modeling.  Frameworks from industrial engineering, accounting, Russian engineering, cognitive science and instructional design are integrated into an analytic method of defining work and worker attributes toward realizing organizational goals.


Organizational Context and Merit Pay

Cynthia J. Maahs, U.S. Office of Personnel Management

Christelle La Police, U.S. Office of Personnel Management

The current study examined the impact of merit pay systems on employee attitudes.  Approximately 3,800 employees covered by a merit pay system were surveyed over two time periods.  Regression analyses indicated pay-for-performance perceptions impacted three employee attitudes.  Also, two organizational context variables were found to predict pay-for-performance perceptions.


Is a Raters Opportunity To Observe Over-rated? A Test of the
Effects of Observational Opportunity on Rater Agreement

James R. Van Scotter, University of Memphis

Robert P. Steel, University of Michigan-Dearborn

Two studies examined the influence of raters opportunity to observe ratees performance on the agreement among ratings.  Two supervisors rated the job performance of (N = 254 and N = 303) Air Force enlistees.  Both studies showed opportunity to observe correlated weakly with rater agreement (i.e., rs = -.11 and .12).


MultiRater Agreement on Leaders Performance:

Gender, Self-monitoring, and Organizations Type

Eleni Speron, Ameritech/Illinois Institute of Technology

Roya Ayman, Illinois Institute of Technology

Karen Korabik, University of Guelph

The level of agreement between Canadian men and women leaders self-ratings and their subordinates ratings of their performance was examined using two methods to calculate agreement.  Results showed that agreement varied as a function of the leaders gender and self-monitoring style and the type of organization.


Learning From Our Mistakes: Error Management Training for Mature Learners

Kelly A. Chillarege, Illinois State University

Cynthia R. Nordstrom, Illinois State University

Karen B. Williams, Illinois State University

Valeri Farmer-Dougan, Illinois State University

Sixty-seven trainees (age 40-80 years) participated in one of four computer training programs (error management/learning goal; error management/performance goal; error avoidant/learning goal; error avoidant/performance goal).  Results indicated beneficial effects for both error management training and learning goals including enhanced performance, increased learning, and requests for assistance and higher intrinsic motivation.


The effects of source attributes on feedback seeking: A field study

Henry F. Thibodeaux, University of Southern Mississippi

Jeffrey D. Kudisch, University of Southern Mississippi

This field study replicates Vancouver and Morrisons (1995) work on the effects of source attributes on feedback-seeking and integrates it with the LMX literature.  Source attributes (referent, reward & expert power; accessibility) varied with group status.  While in-group members used more inquiry; there was no difference in use of monitoring.


Factors Associated with Willingness to Participate in Upward Feedback

Austin Smith, University of Southern Mississippi

Jeffrey D. Kudisch, University of Southern Mississippi

Henry F. Thibodeaux, University of Southern Mississippi

Factors associated with willingness to participate in an upward feedback system were examined.  Participation was negatively related to fear of retaliation, and positively related to role appropriateness, perceived benefits, rating ability, in-group status, knowledge of upward feedback, organizational support, sex, and feedback-seeking.  The relative importance of predictors was also examined.


Rewarding Good citizens: The Relationship Between
Citizenship Behavior, Gender, and Organizational Rewards

Tammy D. Allen, University of South Florida

The relationship between organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and two organizational rewards, salary and promotion, was examined.  Employee gender was also tested as a moderator.  Findings indicated OCB was related to promotions and gender was a moderator.  Specifically, the relationship between OCB and promotion was stronger for males than for females.


Comparison of Self- and Other-Ratings of Organizational Citizenship Behavior

Henry Phillips, University of Houston

John W. Wilson, University of Houston

Lois E. Tetrick, University of Houston

Self- (employed undergraduate) and other- (supervisor or coworker) reports of five OCB scales were compared in latent variable models using data from 174 dyads.  A five factored structure fit a two-group confirmatory model, and latent variances appeared similar, but loadings differed across groups.


Choice Shift in Performance Appraisals: The Validation of Doubt Hypothesis

D. Apryl Rogers, Jeanneret & Associates

Jerry N. Lackey, Stephen F. Austin State University

The effects of group discussion on performance ratings and confidence in ratings is examined.  Group discussion led to decreases in individual ratings, regardless of the nature of information exchanged.  Also found was a trend toward increased confidence in ratings when groups were allowed full discussion.


Effects of Training Method and Goal Orientation on Training Errors
