Commentary of a Minor Bureaucrat.
Ryanen, I. A.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v33 n3 p379-87 Dec 1988
Explores changes affecting personnel testing and selection during past 20 years, noting that outcomes have often been antithesis of expressed or ostensible reason for change. Contends that some changes, designed to end discrimination, have institutionalized discriminatory practices as consequence of legitimizing methods of preferential treatment and making employment decisions based on group membership instead of individual ability.
