Abstract

PROPOSES A NEW EMPHASIS IN THE PREDICTION OF FUTURE JOB BEHAVIOR. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF CONSISTENCIES IS SUGGESTED BETWEEN RELEVANT DIMENSIONS OF JOB BEHAVIOR AND PREEMPLOYMENT BEHAVIOR SAMPLES OBTAINED FROM REAL OR SIMULATED SITUATIONS. IF SAMPLES INSTEAD OF SIGNS ARE EMPLOYED, A NUMBER OF PREDICTION AND MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS ARE ALLEVIATED OR AT LEAST CONFRONTED MORE DIRECTLY. AN EMERGING TECHNOLOGY OF BEHAVIOR SAMPLING AND MEASUREMENT APPEARS TO MAKE THESE GOALS OBTAINABLE. (20 REF.) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
