Organizational Selection and Appraisal Criteria: Field Test of a New Data-Gathering Instrument in a Continuing Study.
Perrill, Norman K.; Stopek, Carrie D.
Employee selection and appraisal criteria were examined in 44 organizations to (1) test a new data gathering instrument, (2) determine the extent to which student interviewers and organizational interviewees had similar perceptions of the importance of the selection and appraisal criteria used in that organization, and (3) continue and expand an ongoing study of the relationship between criteria used for selection and those used for appraisal. The instrument proved to be useful but potentially harmful in influencing the data. Data were analyzed using both parametric and nonparametric correlations. Student and organizational perceptions were found to agree to a surprising degree, especially evidenced by perfect agreement in ranking 22 criteria perceived as most important for selection and 22 perceived as most important for appraisal. Seventeen of the top 22 were common to both selection and appraisal. (Author/RL)
