Substance of Presentation on The J-Coefficient and Job-Element Procedure as a Means of Integrating All Evidences of Ability to Meet Educational or Job Requirements.
Primoff, Ernest S.
This paper concerns two features of a project on the assessment of job potential: the J-Coefficient, and the J-Scale. The J-Coefficient is a means of determining the validity of a test for a position on the basis of (1) the Beta Weights for predicting test scores from a set of elements and (2) estimates of importance of each element in the particular job. The other feature, the J-Scale, is a method in which elements of ability, knowledge, skill or personal characteristics are selected for a particular job, on the basis of their amenability to valid rating when examiners evaluate experience, training, education, etc., as well as tests. See also TM 001 164-166 for further information on the Job Element (J-Scale) method. (Author/DIG)
