Efficiency and Effectiveness of a Resident Assistant Selection Process.
Broitman, Thomas
The American phenomenon of "more is better" extends a value-loaded concept implicit in budget preparation. At any university, the scope, magnitude and cost of a residence hall assistant program selection process is a metaphor to illustrate efficiency and effectiveness of human resources. In order to discover a more efficient and effective selection process, data were collected from 329 student applicants to a Resident Assistant Program. Easily available variables such as term standing, grade point average, and terms lived in a residence hall were compared. Chi Square and T-Test procedures did not reveal any significant differences among the students who were continued or discontinued in the selection process. The outcome "no difference" does however have implications for widely used minimum criteria as a basis for selection. (Author/BMW)
