Enhancing Individual Readiness.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on enhancing individual readiness through human resource development (HRD). "Secondary School Administrator's Perception of Enhancing Self-Worth through Service" (Thomas Li-Ping Tang, Emily James Weatherford) presents results of a study to examine secondary school administrators' endorsement of the Service Ethic that show the 10-item Service Ethic Scale measures a very specific construct and has an excellent reliability measure. "Acceptable vs. Marginal Police Officers' Psychological Ratings: A Longitudinal Comparison of Job Performance" (Gwendolyn V. Brown, Douglas H. Smith) reports a study that used a causal-comparative research design to determine whether there were significant statistical differences in specific job performance variables between 162 candidates who received "acceptable" psychological ratings and 71 who received "marginal" psychological ratings, all of whom were hired by a police department. It shows results of multivariate analyses of variance, t-tests, and chi-square procedures as applicable that indicate no significant differences between the two groups on any of the job performance variables. "An Analysis of the Phase Model of Burnout" (Thomas A. Myers) is a partial literature review that describes the model, including the three subdomains and phases; the power of the model in relation to other variables; and how it can be used in HRD. (YLB)
