The measurement of organizational effectiveness : a review of relevant research and opinion( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general topic of defining organization effectiveness is addressed. While no succinct definition is provided, a construct of organizational effectiveness is recognized. Existing theory, research, and practice surrounding the construct has been searched and current measurement techniques have been cataloged along with summaries of various theories and models. Alternative methodological approaches and manifest characteristics of organizations in terms of effectiveness are considered. A compilation of independent, dependent, and intervening variables is presented. Suggestions are offered for future research in the Navy setting in the area of organizational effectiveness. (Author)
Dimensions of College Student Stress by Peter Villanova( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perceptions of college students concerning the level of stress they experience from 25 potential stressors were studied. The sample consisted of 198 students from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Based on a principal factors analysis with varimax rotation, seven stress-source factors were identified: (1) academic content, (2) interpersonal relationships and health, (3) financial security, (4) relocation and residence, (5) recent death of a family member, (6) sexual relationships, and (7) academic context (campus parking, dealing with the university administration, and relations with instructors). It was found that students perceived academic and monetary factors to be the most intense stressors, and relocation and present residence along with interpersonal relationships and health as being less stressful. These results do not speak to the persistence or duration of these stressors; it is likely that they vary along a temporal dimension as well. Some of the presently more intense stressors may be relatively incidental to long-term outcomes due to their infrequency and/or lack of duration (E.G., impending test). (Sw)
The Effects of Rating Purpose and Anonymity on Self Ratings by Lynn Y Arnaut( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study was designed to answer four questions: (1) do anonymity and purpose affect the leniency of self ratings in general, (2) do these factors interact, (3) do self ratings approximate supervisor ratings under certain conditions, and (4) is self-assessment a useful method of determining training needs? Self-ratings and supervisory ratings were made for 206 employees who were in one of three job categories in the United States Marshals Service. Subjects were told that ratings were for one of three purposes: training needs assessment, research, or personnel administration. In addition, they were instructed either to sign or not to sign their names. The results indicated that the stated purpose for self ratings had a significant effect on self rating leniency, and anonymity had no effect on self rating leniency. (Bw)
