This study re-examined a previously validated application blank in use for 1 year to screen applicants for the position of equipment operator with a company involved in hydrocarbon recovery. Subjects were 409 male equipment operators ranging in age from 19 to 38 years. Minorities accounted for 12% of the group, while 88% were white. Subjects were randomly divided into an even group, N = 201, and an odd group, N = 208. Multiple R's of .39 were obtained for the most significant 10 variables in each group, but these shrank considerably during cross-validation. Only 3 variables were common to both ... continued below

Description

This study re-examined a previously validated application blank in use for 1 year to screen applicants for the position of equipment operator with a company involved in hydrocarbon recovery. Subjects were 409 male equipment operators ranging in age from 19 to 38 years. Minorities accounted for 12% of the group, while 88% were white. Subjects were randomly divided into an even group, N = 201, and an odd group, N = 208. Multiple R's of .39 were obtained for the most significant 10 variables in each group, but these shrank considerably during cross-validation. Only 3 variables were common to both groups since the unique error variances for each group resulted in different arrangements of variables. It was concluded that the items should be re-examined for relevancy and job relatedness.
