Work Personality Profile, Self-Report Version [and] Manual for the Work Personality Profile, Self-Report Version.
The Work Personality Profile-Self Report (WPP-SR) is a self-report work behavior instrument for use in situational assessment in work centers, comprehensive facilities, and employment settings. The WPP-SR assesses work attitudes, values, habits, and behaviors that are essential to the achievement and maintenance of employment. It consists of 58 items that are completed by evaluees using a standard four-point scale. Results are reported on a profile form that includes 11 primary work behavior categories and 5 second-order factor scales. The WPP-SR is designed to be administered in conjunction with the simultaneous completion of the Work Personality Profile by a professional evaluator. This manual contains the instrument, directions for administration, and evidence of the instrument's reliability and validity. The WPP-SR is scored on a floppy disk that generates the score profile directly from self-report ratings on the 58 items. The software is written in BASIC for MS DOS machines. (JDD)
