Behavioral Observation Scales for Performance Appraisal Purposes
Latham, Gary P.; Wexley, Kenneth N.
Personnel Psychology, 30, 2, 255-68, Sum 77
This research attempts to determine whether Behavioral Observation Scales (BOS) could be improved by developing them through quantitative methods. The underlying assumption was that developing composite scales with greater internal consistency might improve their generalizability as evidenced by the cross-validation coefficients of scales based on factor analysis rather than on subjective clustering.
