Relationship of Proficiency Ratings and Personality Traits to Job Success of Stenographic and Secretarial Science Graduates. Final Report.
Rothwell, Wade B.; Baker, Richard A.
To determine whether achievement on selected stenographic and personality tests is a predictive measure of job success when the employee is evaluated using the Minnesota Satisfactoriness Scales as a method of measuring job performance, this study tested 300 stenographic and secretarial majors in Alabama State technical institutions and junior colleges, and 123 graduates employed as stenographers or secretaries. Using statistical analysis of the data, it was concluded that the National Business Entrance Stenographic Test and four of the 16 personality traits as measured by the 16 P.F. Personality Test are predictors of job success when using the Minnesota Satisfactoriness Scales. To analyse the data, researchers used correlation, analysis of variance, statistical "t", and chi square statistical analysis. (Author)
