How honesty testing works by John B Miner( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the demise of the polygraph following the passage of the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, honesty testing has come to be seen as an alternative approach. But it has become the subject of considerable controversy, some legal enactments, a barrage of union opposition, and a great deal of employer interest. Miner and Capps provide an understanding and the tools necessary to help human resource managers make decisions regarding the use of honesty testing. Generic types of testing instruments are assessed; the writing is straightforward, with all statistical and mathematical concepts presented with sufficient detailed explanation for those without technical training.''The employers' need to protect their organizations and reduce the potential for theft and white-collar crime versus the individual's right to privacy are polarized issues in discussing the use of honesty testing. The authors deal with the restrictions imposed by the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1991 and show that certain features of test scoring were directly influenced by legal considerations. The authors then extend the discussion to the Americans with Disabilities Act and how this enactment affects honesty testing

The school administrator and organizational character by John B Miner( Book )

12 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To determine major factors affecting selection and performance of supervisors in school organizations, data were analyzed from a school administrator evaluation form for 219 administrative personnel (79.3 percent of 276 total), representing large city, medium city, small city, and consolidated school districts in the pacific northwest. Applying techniques used in the analysis of business organizations, the study revealed that criteria for selection of school supervisors are determined by job performance criteria for the position and especially by the kind of district concerned. This leads to the formulation of "organizational climate" as a determining variable in the selection of supervisory personnel for a particular district. Descriptions are given for indices of supervisor effectiveness, as indicated by organizational reward (grade level assignment and salary) and overall potential for achievement (biographical factors, verbal ability, inner life orientation, conformity, creativity, innovation, and managerial, work, and social motivations). This document is also available from publications department, center for the advanced study of educational administration, hendricks hall, university of oregon, eugene, oregon 97403, for $2.00. (jk)
