Prediction of Job Performance for Negro and White Medical Technicians; Development of the Instrumentation.
Pike, Lewis W.; And Others
These measurement tests were developed or selected for use in a study of job performance prediction for Negro and white medical technicians. The aptitude tests used were selected from those available rather than developed for this study. These included the Kit of Reference Tests for Cognitive Behavior, the Fine Finger Dexterity Test, and the Extended Range Vocabulary Test. The Picture Number Test and the Necessary Arithmetic Operation Test were selected for associative memory and general reasoning. Criterion measures for performance were developed for this study. A nine point scale was developed, including such points as flexibility, organization, interest, learning ability, job knowledge and communication. A job knowledge test of 584 items was also developed, and later shortened to 75 items, 63 of which were scored. A work sample was designed, taking from two to three hours maximum. A personal history questionnaire was also used, including a task information checklist. (See CG 004 689). (KJ)
