Abstract:

The major hypothesis concerns the way aptitudes, job demands, and surrounding conditions coalesce to yield varying levels of performance. Styles of behavior and values and goals are considered ad hoc. To the extent that variance enters into criterion determination, it is proposed that for many applied purposes including systems development, the criterion should be a given rather than the yield of preceding predictors, and the criterion should be explicitly specified with respect to both cognitive and noncognitive variance. A systems measurement bed--constructed for research purposes to contain situational tests and exercises--can be designed to yield such criterion measures and measures related to the human factors variables.
