Five weighting methods for combining multiple criteria into a single composite were evaluated on 117 bank tellers. Four of the five methods (management, weights, equal weights, unit weights and factor weights) yielded nearly identical results. The fifth method (canonical weights) correlated almost zero with the other methods. (Author/PN)
