Manual for the Minnesota Satisfactoriness Scales. Minnesota Studies in Vocational Rehabilitation: XXVII.
Gibson, Dennis L.; And Others
Intended as a manual for the Minnesota Satisfaction Scales, this monograph describes the development of the 28-item questionnaire designed to be completed by a worker's supervisor to assess the satisfactoriness of an employee. The scales were developed from supervisor ratings of 2,373 workers, and norms are provided for the occupational groups of Professional, Managerial and Technical, Clerical and Sales, Machine Trades and Bench Work, and Workers-in-General. The five scales show a median internal consistency reliability of .87, and a median test-retest reliability for several job groups over a 2-year interval was .50. Other technical data concerning the reliability and validity of the scales are provided. In addition to use a worker's supervisor, the scales can be used by a vocational rehabilitation agency or counselor in followup studies which evaluate the quality of counseling outcomes, or it can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of job placement or training programs. Authorization to use the scales may be obtained by writing to Vocational Psychology Research, 406 Elliott Hall, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455.
