THE APPLICATION BLANK AS A PREDICTIVE INSTRUMENT FOR THE SELECTION OF PART-TIME TEACHERS IN AN EVENING COLLEGE.
HEILIG, HARLAND E.
THE CORRELATION BETWEEN APPLICATION BLANK DATA AND TEACHING SUCCESS WAS INVESTIGATED, USING A SAMPLE OF 272 PART-TIME EVENING COLLEGE TEACHERS DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR 1960-61. THE CRITERION WAS THE DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN'S JUDGMENT OF TEACHING SUCCESS. THE PREDICTORS WERE DATA FROM APPLICATION BLANKS FOR THE STAFF AS A WHOLE AND FOR TEN DEPARTMENTS INDIVIDUALLY. CHARACTERISTICS RELATED TO TEACHING SUCCESS FOR THE STAFF AS A WHOLE WERE TEACHING EXPERIENCE, MILITARY RANK, GRADUATE DEGREE STATUS, PROFESSIONAL GROUP AFFILIATIONS, NUMBER OF COLLEGE DEGREES, AND ATTENDANCE AT UNDERGRADUATE COLLEGE AWAY FROM THE SECONDARY SCHOOL COMMUNITY. AGE WHEN HIRED, TEACHING EXPERIENCE, PROFESSIONAL SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP, PUBLICATION, AND MILITARY RANK WERE THE MOST FREQUENTLY OCCURRING PREDICTORS OF SUCCESS IN INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS, ALTHOUGH THE SIGN OF CORRELATION DIFFERED AMONG DEPARTMENTS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT--(1) THERE WERE SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS FOR INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS, (2) THE MORE SUCCESSFUL TEACHERS WERE MORE ALIKE IN ALL CHARACTERISTICS THAN WERE THE LESS SUCCESSFUL, (3) CHARACTERISTICS ACCEPTED AS PREDICTORS OF TEACHING EFFECTIVENESS DID NOT APPLY IN SOME DEPARTMENTS, AND (4) EACH DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN SHOULD SELECT HIS OWN PART-TIME TEACHERS.
