Employment Testing and Incentives to Learn.
Bishop, John H.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v33 n3 p404-23 Dec 1988
Asserts that employment tests predict job performance by measuring or being correlated with abilities causally related to productivity. Contends that American economy underrewards achievements measured by these tests and that absence of economic incentives to study in high school has contributed to low achievement in mathematics and science. Discusses ways in which employment tests can strengthen incentives to learn. (Author/NB)
