BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND THE PREDICTION OF MULTIPLE CRITERIA OF SUCCESS IN SCIENCE.
TAYLOR, CALVIN W.; AND OTHERS
REPORTED ARE THE RESULTS OF SEVERAL RELATED STUDIES SUPPORTED BY THE NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION (NASA). THESE STUDIES ATTEMPTED TO (1) DETERMINE THOSE CHARACTERISTICS OF SCIENTISTS WHICH ARE VALID IN DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN SCIENTISTS OF HIGH AND LOW LEVEL PRODUCTIVITY AND CREATIVITY, AND (2) UTILIZE THESE CHARACTERISTICS IN DEVELOPING AN EASILY ADMINISTERED AND SCORED BIOGRAPHICAL INVENTORY WHICH WOULD AID IN THE IDENTIFICATION OF SCIENTIFIC TALENT AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL. MUCH OF THE DOCUMENT IS DEVOTED TO SEVERAL STUDIES INVOLVING THE SEQUENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE INVENTORY THROUGH FOUR FORMS. DATA AND A DISCUSSION OF THE RESULTS ARE PROVIDED FOR EACH FORM. STUDIES INVOLVING THE FIRST THREE FORMS ARE CONCURRENT VALIDITY STUDIES. THE FOURTH STUDY REPORTS HOW THE INSTRUMENT PERFORMED IN A FOLLOW-UP STUDY AND PROVIDES INFORMATION ON ITS VALIDITY IN A PREDICTIVE, LONGITUDINAL SITUATION. ALSO DISCUSSED ARE THE ITEM CONTENT OF THE INVENTORY AND OTHER RESEARCH ACTIVITIES DEALING WITH BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION. APPENDED ARE THE RATING SCALES FOR NASA SCIENTISTS. (DS)
