The Effect of Short-Term Institute Experiences Involving Sensitivity Training on Attitudes of Employment Security Personnel.
Keith, James A.
This study evaluated and measured the effectiveness and enduring effects of two training groups with respect to transmitting knowledge and affecting change. Control subjects and experimental subjects were used. Data was obtained from the Sixteen Factor Personality Questionnaire, the Gough-Sanford Rigidity Scale, and the IPAT 8 Parallel Form Anxiety Battery. It was concluded that the short-term training institutes had little measureable effect upon participants in terms of the goals of the training and that the study was limited by the weaknesses of the measuring instruments. There is a real need to experiment with and evaluate short-term training programs rather than taking the subjective ratings of participants and judges. (Author/EK)
