Abstract:

The use of computer techniques to evaluate data in an attempt to find useful predictors of various criteria is of continuing interest. The use of stepwise pattern analysis to select predictors has shown promising results. This paper presents a refinement of this technique for use in personnel selection, which allows the items selected to be tailored to the various patterns of the previously selected items. This is followed by a discussion of the results obtained in selecting a four-item pattern, from the responses to an advancement examination, that best predicts performance on the general classification test.
