Abstract:

Ipsative measures of rated characteristics avoid the problems of halo and leniency error, but they have not been useful in discriminating between subjects normative uses. This study investigated the efficacy of converting ipsative measures of subjects and of jobs to a job-worker match coefficient of correlation, which then might be used normatively. The results did not firmly establish the superiority of either ipsative or normative rankings. Author
