Statistical/Methodological Myths and Urban Legends III:  The Saga Continues

A number of research methodology truisms, referred to here as “statistical and methodological myths and urban legends,” have evolved over time.  The papers included in this symposium examine 4 of these as to their partial veracity, accompanying mythology, and current status as mere lore versus sound research dictum.

Test Bias Really Makes Me Mad

Neil D. Christiansen, Central Michigan University, Facilitator


5-1 Toward Understanding Race Differences in Validity of Cognitive Ability Tests

Contrary to prevailing opinion, lower criterion-related validity of ability tests for minorities is common, though most evidence is dated. This study explored differential validity in a large (N > 130,000) contemporary dataset. Although uncorrected validity was slightly lower for minorities, these differences disappeared when a number of contaminating factors were controlled.

5-2 Ignoring the Spearman-Jensen Effect Leads to Erroneous Test Bias Conclusions

Failure to consider the Spearman-Jensen effect, that group differences in observed cognitive ability test scores are directly proportional to the degree the manifest indicator reflects g, can lead to erroneous conclusions regarding test bias defined according to the Thorndike model of fairness. This paper illustrates this phenomenon via a simulation.

5-3 Reducing Adverse Impact Using a Nontraditional Cognitive Ability Assessment

This study examined the use of a nontraditional cognitive ability test with 2 objectives in mind: to reduce Black/White mean-score differences and to retain predictive validity in laboratory and field settings. Results indicate that mean differences were drastically reduced, and predictive validity was often greater than traditional cognitive ability tests.

5-4 A New Approach to Assessing Test Bias

A new regression-based method of assessing test bias is proposed. Two different potential causes of differences in groups’ regression line intercepts are proposed. Intercepts differing due to mean criterion score differences are not interpreted as predictive test bias. Using both simulated and employee data, this new approach is illustrated.

Contingent Incentives...Good or Bad for Work Motivation?

Pay for performance is often recommended for motivating employees in work organizations. But self-determination theory argues that contingent rewards may be detrimental to intrinsic motivation. Three studies show the effects of contingent pay on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and work outcomes. Three different interpretations of these results are proposed.

10-4 Participative Management as an Indicator of Managerial Success and Derailment

From an upward mobility perspective (Turner, 1960), this study revealed that direct report ratings of participative management were statistically significantly related to boss ratings of managerial success and derailment. Though gender was hypothesized to moderate the relationship, results revealed statistically nonsignificant findings. Limitations, future research directions, and practical implications are discussed.

10-5 Perceived Supervisor Loyalty and Transformational Leadership Effectiveness

This study suggests that perceived supervisor loyalty can discriminate authentic transformational leaders from others. By using 246 supervisor–subordinate dyads, the results showed that perceived supervisor loyalty moderated the relationship between transformational leadership and leadership effectiveness. It was thought that only when perceived supervisor loyalty was high, TL would have effect.

10-9 Subordinates’ Egocentricity as a Moderator to Leader Categorization Theory
This paper shows (N = 287) that subordinates’ self-perceptions as (potential) leaders and subordinates’ social comparison orientation moderate the effects proposed in leader categorization theory. The relationship between leader categorization and subordinates’ openness towards leadership was stronger the more subordinates perceived own leadership qualities and the stronger their social comparison orientation.

Self-concept refers to one’s method of self-definition: individual, relational, or collective. Past research has demonstrated a link between one’s self-concept and justice perceptions, but does the self-concept of one’s supervisor also come into play? This study found that supervisor and subordinate self-concept interact to impact subordinate justice perceptions.

22-1 Telecommuting and Job Satisfaction: Invest-igation of Work–Life Balance and Workaholism

This study examines the interrelations between telecommuting, job satisfaction, work–life balance, and workaholism among 85 telecommuters. A curvilinear relation between telecommuting and job satisfaction was found, and it was also found that work–life balance moderates the linear but not curvilinear relation between telecommuting and job satisfaction.

22-2 Investigating Work/Home Segmentation, Telework, Organizational Commitment and Turnover Intentions

This paper investigated telework as an intervening variable between segmentation preferences/supplies and job outcomes. Results from a survey of 459 people indicate that segmentation preferences/supplies are related to commitment and turnover intentions, and that extent of telework partially mediates the relationship between work-from-home segmentation preference and commitment.

Using a sample of 178 employees, this study tested the extent to which work-to-family and family-to-work conflict/facilitation mediate the relationship between the extent of teleworking and job performance. Contrary to popular belief, teleworking was not significantly related to the work–family constructs tested nor was it related to supervisor ratings of performance.

23-1 Follower Undermining of Leaders in the Workplace

This paper presents and tests a model of upward undermining in the workplace. As hypothesized, perceived organizational support, negative affect, and core self-evaluations were associated with follower undermining of their leaders. Further, follower undermining behaviors (spreading rumors, reducing contributions) were associated with increased relational conflict between leaders and followers.

23-2 Dishonest Behavior: The Impact of Self-Regulatory Resource Depletion and Personality

This study examined how self-regulatory resource depletion and personality contribute to organizationally relevant dishonest behavior. Participants completed personality measures, a depleting or nondepleting task, and then were compensated for working alone until the end of the experiment. Results indicated that depletion and personality contributed to leaving the experiment early.

Machiavellianism has been traditionally viewed as a personality variable that leads to negative workplace outcomes. But, evidence depicts this view of Machiavellians as overly simplified. By using a multifaceted conceptualization of Machiavellianism, it is shown that Machiavellianism can lead to both OCB and CWB, moderated by gender.

23-11 The Relationship of GMA to Counterproductive Work Behavior Revisited

We examined sample homogeneity and criterion measurement as 2 possible explanations for previously inconsistent findings on GMA–CWB relationships.  In Study 1, GMA was unrelated to self-reported CWB in occupationally homogeneous samples. Study 2 found GMA partially related to objectively measured but not self-reported CWB. Criterion measurement appears crucial.
