Development of Criterion Dimensions for Youth-Work Training Programs.
Freeberg, Norman E.; Reilly, Richard R.
Two sets of multiple criterion dimensions were identified for use with disadvantaged adolescents who participated in youth-work training programs. One set was composed of five factors applicable to short-term "success" at program completion (e.g., "Training Program Adjustment"; "Social-Community Adjustment"). Six factors extracted from a matrix of post-program variables defined a criterion domain covering various aspects of employment and social adjustment (e.g., "General Adjustment and Job Success"; "Blue-Collar Job Success"; "Community-Family Adjustment"). Dependence on a single overriding criterion measure, such as employment, was shown to limit the understanding of behavioral outcomes. (Author/KM)
