Performance Appraisal, 360 Degree, Withdrawal

245-1. Predicting Goal Attainment From Administrative and Developmental Multisource Feedback Ratings

This study examined the external validity of multisource feedback ratings made for developmental purposes compared to administrative purposes. Results for a sample of 396 managers showed that both ratings demonstrated external validity. Contrary to expectations, ratings made for administrative purposes had stronger relationships with external criterion measures than developmental ratings.

245-2. Weighting Criteria: The Impact on Validity and Subgroup Differences

This study examines how weighting criteria by job importance affects predictorcriterion relationships and subgroup differences in performance ratings. Results reveal that weighted criteria result in less racial subgroup differences than the use of unweighted criteria, with no loss in criterion-related validity.

245-3. Understanding Peer Ratings of Performance: Applying the Social Relations Model

The present research takes a new approach to examining peer ratings of performance. The Social Relations Model is utilized to determine if variance in ratings is attributed to characteristics of the rater or the ratee. Results demonstrate that for all performance dimensions examined variance was present due to both sources.

245-6. Why is Big Brother Watching? Examining the Purpose Behind EPM

This study examined whether the reason offered for electronic performance monitoring (EPM) influenced participants performance and reactions. Participants performed a data-entry task in 1 of 5 experimental conditions (unmonitored, no explanation, research, development, and administrative). Administrative condition participants had higher motivation and performance yet relatively low stress and dissatisfaction levels.

245-7. Some People Never Change! Predicting Anchoring on Initial Employee Performance 

When required to make judgments of others, people are often anchored by their first impressions. An experimental study found that managers implicit person theory (IPT) regarding the malleability of personal attributes (e.g., personality and ability) predicted the extent to which they anchored on their initial impressions of employee performance.

245-9. Working Memory Effects on Accuracy and Halo in Performance Ratings 

Raters who know what the rating dimensions are before observing performance make more accurate ratings, presumably because they can update dimensional judgments while observing performance episodes. Raters who are distracted with a secondary task while recalling performance information make more haloed ratings, presumably because they cannot suppress overall impressions.

245-10. The Mediating Effect of Reactions to Multisource Feedback

This study examined the relationships between multisource feedback characteristics, reactions to feedback, and goal setting in a sample of 390 managers. Findings revealed that managers reactions to feedback mediated the relationships between rating discrepancies, source credibility, rater observational opportunity, and internal performance attributions and the outcome measure of goal setting.

245-11. Evaluation of 360-Degree Feedback: Criterion-Related Validity of a Multisource Instrument

This study evaluates self-, peer, and supervisor ratings of 195 employees in a Dutch public organization. Overall interrater agreement between and within rater categories was moderate. Using an intelligence test, an AC exercise, and a personality questionnaire as external criteria, little evidence was found for the criterion-related validity of the 360-degree ratings.

245-12. Understanding Performance Appraisal Leniency: Antecedents and Consequences of Rating 

We examined leniency as a response to rater discomfort with providing negative performance feedback. As hypothesized, expectations of ratee challenge and ratee feedback acceptance were associated with rater discomfort, which mediated rating leniency. In addition, direct effects of appraisal purpose and incentive to rate accurately on rating leniency were replicated.

245-13. Self-View Certainty as a Moderator of Feedback Reactions

The present study investigated whether employees react favorably to positive feedback or to feedback that confirms their self-views and if these reactions are moderated by self-view certainty. Results showed that feedback scores were the main determinant of feedback reactions. Self-view certainty moderated perceived utility of feedback for the competency Decisiveness.

245-16. An Investigation of Behavioral Specificity and Rater Agreement 

This study empirically investigated the relationship between behavioral specificity and rater agreement, performance rating, and difficulty perceptions. The results, based on 312 raters, suggest that raters agree more on nonspecific items. Also, on the dimension level, rater agreement was higher on dimensions perceived as more difficult to rate.

245-17. Beyond Measurement Invariance: Investigating Performance Ratings Covariates Using MIMIC Modeling

This study assessed the measurement invariance of self- and supervisor ratings. Moreover, MIMIC modeling was used to examine potential covariates of task and contextual performance ratings. Results demonstrated measurement invariance across rates. However, both subordinate and supervisor demographic variables (age, sex, and tenure) were found to influence latent performance ratings.

This paper reports on an instrument to assess employee perceived performance appraisal congruency. An Internet survey completed by 135 individuals showed performance appraisal congruency predicted overall system satisfaction, perceived usefulness, and fairness. Also, the less respondents knew about their performance appraisal system, the less satisfied they were with it.

245-19. A Meta-Analytic Review of the Performance-Cue Bias

A meta-analytic review of research on the performance-cue bias (PCB) revealed that the PCB is of a sufficient magnitude to exert influence on ratings of leaders, groups, and the self. Importantly, the subjectiveobjective nature of the rating instrument and the amount of individuating information provided to raters moderated the PCB.

245-26. Effect of Situational Judgment Test Response Instructions on Validity

This study investigated the effects of response instructions (i.e., most/least likely and most/least effective) for situational judgment tests (SJT). Effective SJT scores were more strongly related to reasoning ability than the likely SJT scores. However, the likely SJT scores (but not the effective SJT scores) predicted supervisory ratings of professionalism.

253. Symposium: Sunday, 8:309:50 San Bernardino (Lobby Level)

Measuring and Changing Attitudinal Barriers Toward Hiring People With Disabilities

Many Americans with disabilities have not received employment parity with the rest of the population because many employers hold negative attitudes about people with disabilities. The papers in this symposium describe recent research projects that address this need by exploring the reliability and validity of different attitudinal measures to disability.

258-1. Focused Attention and Error Detection in a Prescription-Checking Task

43 participants completed a 40-minute simulated prescription-checking task. Focused attention was measured using the d2 Test of Attention. Hit ratios, false-alarm ratios, and work pace were the dependent measures. As expected, results showed that d2 test performance predicted hit ratios on the checking task.

258-2. Problems of Item Parceling with CFA Tests of Measurement Invariance

Combining items into parcels in confirmatory factor analysis can improve model estimation and fit. The impact of using parcels in tests of measurement invariance was examined with simulated data. Models using parcels as indicators erroneously indicated that measurement invariance existed more often than models using items as indicators.

258-3. Sensitivity of DFIT Tests of Measurement Invariance for Likert Data

While popular, few studies have assessed the efficacy of the Differential Functioning of Items and Tests (DFIT) methodology for assessing measurement invariance with Likert data. Monte-Carlo analyses indicate a lack of sensitivity of the DFIT methodology for identifying lack of measurement invariance under some conditions of differential functioning.

Though widely used, confirmatory factor analysis tests of measurement invariance are not well understood. Results of a simulation study indicated that the power of invariance tests varied widely depending on sample size, factor overdetermination, and item communality. Accurate estimation of parameters provide a possible explanation for these results.

Many variables treated as stable by industrial psychologists do fluctuate within-person over time. This variation raises concerns about the accuracy of global retrospective reports of behavior and affect. It also offers opportunities to build new theory about within-person processes. Experience sampling methodology is recommended to address these concerns and opportunities.
