Development and Evaluation of an Objective Technique to Assess Effort in Training. Final Report.
Pritchard, Robert D.; And Others
This research explored the validation of a quantifiable, objective, and reliable method of measuring the amount of effort to be directly rewarded in incentive systems. A battery of relevant ability tests was given to a sample of Air Force trainees and to civilian subjects using a simulation of the course taught the Air Force trainees. Results showed that the simulation subjects were comparable to the Air Force subjects and that the ability test battery predicted performance equally well for both samples. The hard criterion of effort displayed wide variability, excellent reliability, and good construct validity. (Author)
