50-1. A Structural Equation Model Measuring Faking Propensity and Faking Ability

Measures of several personality variables were obtained in a repeated measures design employing honest, incentive, and instructed-faking conditions. Application of a structural equation model found faking propensity and faking ability latent variables to be uncorrelated. Faking propensity was related to emotional stability. Faking ability was related to cognitive ability.

Proposals that distal goals frame proximal goal processes have gained little research attention. We examined effects of distal goal content on the commitment to and difficulty of proximal goals. Goal orientation and career goal content predicted proximal goal difficulty and commitment; however, framing effects became weaker over time.

A meta-analysis revealed that both unstructured (d = .59) and structured interviews ( = .23) were affected by sources of bias such as interviewee race, sex, pregnancy, and use of nonverbal cues. Though both interview types were affected, unstructured interviews were significantly more susceptible to bias than were structured interviews.

The use of control variables is more common in regression than in structural equation modeling (SEM). There are theoretical and methodological reasons for this divide. Two simulations were conducted to assess the effects of using partial covariances in SEM. Results indicate structural equation models can be simplified under certain conditions.

69-23. Evaluation of the SAMD-z Statistic for Detecting Outliers in Meta-Analysis

Due to the potential for bias in the SAMD statistic for determining outliers in correlational meta-analyses, an alternate statistic, the SAMD-z, was developed and evaluated. Results of Monte Carlo simulations indicated that under identical situations the SAMD-z statistic was more accurate than the SAMD for identifying outlier studies.

The Likelihood Ratio (LR) test and differential functioning of items and tests (DFIT) methodology were compared in their sensitivity to detecting differential item functioning (DIF) in a 21-item leadership development measure. Results demonstrated that the LR test was much more sensitive to identifying existing DIF than was DFIT.

69-27. Number of Factors Decision: Parallel Analysis Is Not the Panacea

Parallel analysis (PA) has recently been touted as the most accurate method to decide number of factors to retain in exploratory factor analysis. We argue conceptually that PA does not solve the factor retention problem and demonstrate empirically that exclusive reliance on PA could lead to less than optimal decisions.

105-18. Learning Goal Orientation, Monitoring, and Creativity: Mediating Role of Scouting

Using survey data from 3 sources (157 employees and their coworkers and supervisors), researchers found that creativity had a direct relationship with supervisor close monitoring (negative) and learning goal orientation (positive). The effects of supervisor close monitoring and learning goal orientation on creativity were completely mediated by scouting behavior.

105-19. Relative Importance of Antecedents to Voluntary Workplace Behaviors

A model of voluntary behaviors is tested using dominance analysis. Environmental and individual characteristics that have been previously supported as antecedents to both OCB and CWB were analyzed to determine the relative importance of these variables. Hypotheses were contrary to previously published multiple regressions, but clear patterns can be discerned.

105-20. Perceived Requirement as a Mediator of PersonalityContextual Performance Relationships

We examined whether the extent to which employees perceive contextual performance as required influences their engagement in these behaviors and whether differences in perceived requirement affect the relationship between personality and contextual performance. Results suggest that perceived requirement predicts contextual performance and mediates the effects of personality on contextual performance.

105-21. Limits on Leadership and Job Design: Importance of Error Criticality

Motivational work design and leadership are generally thought of as positive aspects of a job. We propose that there are cases in which generally motivating features of work are less appealing. Results show that error criticality attenuates the positive effects of self-determination supportive leadership and motivational work design.

Within-person variability in performance is generally considered measurement error, but recent personality research has found stable individual differences in variability. Using an archival data set (NCAA Division I mens basketball statistics), we find (a) reliable individual differences in performance consistency and (b) consistency incrementally predicts team success above individual performance.

The congruence between momentary and retrospective reports of mood, OCBs, CWBs, task, and overall performance were examined. Correlations indicated fairly good recall; however, the congruence decreased when within-person variance increased. In addition, the proportion of variance in retrospective reports predicted by between-person variables increased when within-person variance decreased. Implications are discussed.

Raters vary in the relative weights they assign to task, citizenship (OCB), and counterproductive behavior (CWB) when they rate overall performance. This study investigated whether rater personality and general mental ability (GMA) explain these differences. Results indicate that agreeable raters emphasize OCB and raters high in GMA emphasize task performance.

114-1. The Role of Employee Attributions of HR Practices in SHRM

S. Rains Wallace Dissertation Research Award

To address the dearth of research on the link between employee experiences of HR practices and unit/organizational effectiveness, I introduce the construct of HR attributions and show that the attributions employees make about why management adopts the HR practices that it does influences their attitudes, behaviors, and ultimately, unit effectiveness.
