EVALUATION OF APPLICATION BLANKS USED IN THE COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE WITH SPECIAL ATTENTION GIVEN TO THEIR VALUE IN THE PERSONNEL SELECTION PROCEDURE.
BATH, ROBERT WAYNE
COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE APPLICATION BLANKS WERE EVALUATED WITH SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THEIR VALUE IN PERSONNEL SELECTION. EXTENSION AGENT APPLICATION BLANKS FROM THE 50 STATE EXTENSION SERVICES WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE COMMON AND UNUSUAL ITEMS. RESPONSES SUBMITTED BY 194 APPLICANTS TO THE MINNESOTA COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE WERE ALSO EXAMINED. RELATIONSHIPS WERE DETERMINED BETWEEN SUCCESSFUL AND LESS SUCCESSFUL MALE COUNTY EXTENSION PERSONNEL AND BETWEEN EMPLOYED AND UNEMPLOYED APPLICANTS. AS SHOWN BY ANALYSIS OF DATA AND IN A REVIEW OF PERTINENT LITERATURE, APPLICATION BLANK ITEMS VARIED WIDELY BY STATES, SELECTION BY PAIRED COMPARISONS WAS STATISFACTORY WHEN BASED ON THE CRITERION OF JOB PERFORMANCE, RESPONSES RELATING TO EMPLOYMENT STATUS WERE STATISTICALLY MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN DATA ON RELATIVE SUCCESS, AND THE WEIGHTED APPLICATION BLANK TECHNIQUE AND DISCRIMINANT FUNCTIONS ANALYSIS WOULD HAVE SLIGHTLY IMPROVED THE SELECTION OF SUCCESSFUL EMPLOYEES.
