Aptitude and Rating Factors of Negroes and Whites.
Rock, Donald A.; Evans, Franklin R.
This paper reports the results of three sets of factor analyses. The purpose of these investigations was to determine whether, among the aptitude tests: (1) there appeared to be different aptitude patterns for Negroes and whites, (2) whether the configuration or pattern of the ratings received by Negroes and whites were related in the same way to the aptitude tests, and (3) whether the Negro and white raters reacted in different fashions to Negro and white medical technicians. The results include: (1) the patterns are more similar than they are different, but there are enough differences in the factor patterns to warrant further study; (2) there seems to be little overlap between the abilities measured by the aptitude tests and supervisors' and co-workers' evaluations of job performance for either race; (3) evaluation by Negro supervisors of Negro technicians reflects the same abilities measures by the Aptitude and Job Knowledge Tests. Evaluation by white supervisors of white technicians reflects the Job Knowledge test to some extent and some small influence by the abilities measured by the Aptitude tests. (Author/KJ)
