Use of Psychological Tests in an Administrative Staff Improvement Program.
Johnson, Richard W.; North, Stewart D.
All School Administrators and Nominees for administrative positions enrolled in an Administrative Staff Improvement Program at Green Bay, Wisconsin, completed a battery of psychological tests (Miller Analogies Test, Concept Mastery Test, and Strong Vocational Interest Blank). The enrollees scored above average on the MAT compared with graduate students in educational administration. The MAT scores were highly correlated with scores on the CMT suggesting that the latter may serve as a reasonable substitute for the MAT for some testing purposes. The vocational interests for the male enrollees were most closely related to those of people employed in public administration and related social service occupations. The SVIB scores were moderately correlated with ratings of job effectiveness and occupational satisfaction for the male Administrators. The test scores were not significantly correlated with the criterion measures for the male Nominees presumably due to the unreliability of the peer ratings and the homogeneity of the occupational satisfaction scores.
