Correlates of two experimental tests with performance in the FAA Academy Air Traffic Control Nonradar Screen Program by David J Schroeder( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was designed to determine the relationships among experimental tests, the tests currently used to select entrants into the FAA's Air Traffic Control Specialist (ATCS) Academy Nonradar Screening Program, and Academy success. A battery of paper-and pencil tests, including the Directional Headings Test (DHT) which was developed at the Civil Aeromedical Inst, and subsequently modified for this study, and the Dial Reading Test (DRT) was administered to 1,225 students who entered in 1987. Scores on the current selection measures, the Multiplex Controller Aptitude Test (MCAT) and Abstract Reasoning Test, were obtained from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The pass, fail, and withdrawal rates for the sample were compared to performance levels on the experimental and OPM tests. Several Academy performance criteria and test results were intercorrelated and stepwise multiple regression analyses were conducted to predict overall Academy success and final grades. Results demonstrated that the DHT and DRT could be used to assess the potential of entrants to successfully complete the Academy Screen. Even though the current ATCS applicant group differs from those entering the Academy a decade ago on several dimensions (e.g., education and experience), the multiple correlation of the DHT, and MCAT scores with Academy success remained relatively unchanged. Results suggest there are other test measures which, when combined with the MCAT, would be better predictors than the existing battery of selection tests

Relationships of Type A behavior with biographical characteristics and training performance of air traffic controllers : final report by Lendell G Nye( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there has been a considerable amount of research concerning the relationships between various cognitive measures and the selection and subsequent performance of Air Traffic Control Specialists (ATCSs), data concerning the potential importance of personality factors are quite limited. As part of an expanded research program, selected personality measures and biographical questionnaires have been administered to ATCSs at the time of their entry into the FAA Academy Nonradar Screen Program. A considerable body of research surrounds the Jenkins Activity Survey (JAS) as a measure of Type A behavior, coronary proneness, and other health problems. More recently, a revised JAS scoring procedure has been developed for Achievement Striving (AS) and Impatience-Irritability (II) scales; those scales have been significantly and differentially related to job performance, academic achievement, job satisfaction, and negative effect (e.g., depression). The JAS and a biographical questionnaire were administered to 474 ATCS students at the beginning of the nine-week screening program. Scores on the traditional JAS, AS, and II scales were compared with measures of FAA Academy performance, and attitudinal and biographical data. Analyses of the JAS questions confirmed the presence of the As and II factors. In contrast to previous research, which documented a positive relationship between AS and academic achievement in college, correlations between As and Academy achievement were non-significant. Given the historical use of the JAS and current support for the existence of the new scales, longitudinal studies could examine the effectiveness of the JAS in predicting both the long-term job success of air traffic controllers and prospective health-related problems that might arise
Relationships of anxiety scores to academy and field training performance of air traffic control specialists by William Edward Collins( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State-trait anxiety scores were used prior to the 1981 strike of air traffic control specialists (ATCSs) to estimate perceived levels of job stress in field studies of this occupational group. The present study assessed the relationship between anxiety, as measured by the State-Trait Personality Inventory (STPI), and post-strike ATCS trainee success at the FAA Academy and during field training. The STPI was administered to students who entered the FAA Academy between June 1984 and September 1985. Academy test scores were obtained for 1,790 students in the enroute option. Criterion data included the field training status of the Academy graduates as of July 1988. Statistical analyses determined the relationships between ATCS student scores on the STPI measures and (a) normative data and (b) Academy and field performance. ATCS students reported significantly lower state (current level) and trait (proneness) levels of anxiety than did either college students or military recruits. Individuals who were unsuccessful at the Academy, as well as those who were unsuccessful in the field, had higher overall anxiety scores. Trainees who had relatively high scores (for ATCS) on a combined index of the trait and state measures of anxiety exhibited significantly higher (a) percentages of Academy failures/withdrawals, (b) percentages of option switches in the field, and (c) overall field attrition than did trainees with low scores. Results support the operation of some personality-related self-selection among ATCS applicants regarding anxiety, and the importance of this characteristic for ATCS job success

Confirmatory factor analysis of burnout dimensions : correlations with job stressors and aspects of social support and job satisfaction by Lendell G Nye( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the dimensionality and construct validity of Golembiewski, Munzenrider, and Stevenson (1986) revision of the Maslach and Jackson (1981) Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI). Results of confirmatory factor analyses conducted on data collected from 357 FAA employees in a technical, safety-related occupation provided support for a 3-factor, correlated model of burnout. The results suggest that the three factors (emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment) were differentially correlated with organizational phenomena of interest. These findings extend the literature beyond analyses on human service type workers and suggest the utility of developing and implementing different strategies for management interventions to respond to different manifestations of employee burnout.

Dimensionality and Construct Validity of the Perceptions of Organizational Politics Scale (POPS) by Lendell G Nye( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the dimensionality and construct validity of Kacmar and Ferris (1991) Perceptions of Organizational Politics Scale (POPS), which is comprised of 3 subscales -- General Political Behavior, Going Along to Get Ahead, and Pay and Promotion. Results of analyses conducted on data collected from 1,297 civilian government employees were inconsistent with a multidimensional factor structure of the POPS. Principal components and confirmatory factor analyses failed to confirm the Kacmar and Ferris 3-factor solution. Rather, the results indicated that the POPS was unidimensional. POPS scores were strongly and inversely related to scores on the Eisenberger, Huntington, Hutchison, and Sowa (1986) Survey of Perceived Organizational Support (SPOS). POPS and SPOS scores were not differentially correlated with other job attitude measures. Dimensionality, Validity, Perceptions of Organizational Politics Scale (POPS)
Some Personality Characteristics of Air Traffic Control Specialist Trainees: Interactions of Personality and Aptitude Test Scores with FAA Academy Success and Career Expectations by Lendell G Nye( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The State-Trait Personality Inventory (STPI) is a self-report inventory which measures anxiety, curiosity, and anger. The three 'trait' scale scores are determined by the frequency of each emotion as stable personality constructs. The Multiplex Controller Aptitude Test (MCAT) is the primary selection test completed by ATCS applicants. The STPI was given to 1,284 students who entered the FAA Academy nonradar screen program between October 1986 and September 1987. Men and women ATCS trainees exhibited less anxiety and anger than normative groups of college students and Navy recruits. Also, in most comparisons, the ATCS sample indicated greater curiosity. ATCS pass rates were reduced within each MCAT score level for the groups of entrants with anxiety or anger scores above the normative levels. Personality trait profiles differed significantly for groups when they were categorized by both self-expected job performance levels and job satisfaction, but not aptitude score levels. Analyses indicated significant relationships between anxiety and lower job performance self-expectations and between curiosity and higher self-expected job satisfaction. FAA Academy entrants have a group profile indicating relatively low levels of trait anxiety and anger. Personality factors can impact (a) the predictive validity of the MCAT in determining a student's aptitude for learning air traffic control principles/procedures and (b) potentially, organizational goals such as increasing employee job satisfaction
Organizational Goal Congruence and Job Attitudes Revisited( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Vancouver and Schmitt (1991) operationalized person-organization fit in terms of goal congruence and reported that goal congruence scores were positively related to favorable job attitudes. The purpose of the present study was to replicate and extend their work. Specifically, we sought to: (1) replicate their findings of goal congruence scores as predictors of job satisfaction and organizational commitment; (2) determine if goal congruence scores were related to perceptions of organizational support and organizational politics; and (3) assess the extent to which goal congruence scores accounted for variance in job satisfaction and organizational commitment beyond that contributed by scores on the Eisenberger et al. (1986) perceptions of organizational support scale and the Kacmar and Ferris (1991) perceptions of organizational politics scale. Data collected from 991 FAA employees indicated that goal congruence scores were positively related to favorable job attitudes, as found by Vancouver and Schmitt (1991). However, the partialing out of organizational support and organizational politics scores from the relationships of goal congruence with job satisfaction and commitment accounted for most of the variance. These results have implications for the use of goal congruence as an index of person-organization fit and perhaps as well for the importance of the notion of person-organization fit.

Studies of Poststrike Air Traffic Control Specialist Trainees. 3. Changes in Demographic Characteristics of Academy Entrants and Biodemographic Predictors of Success in Air Traffic Controller Selection and Academy Screening( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A Biographical Questionnaire (BQ) was completed by 3,578 air traffic control students who entered the FAA Academy between October1985 and September 1987. The demographic characteristics of these more recent Academy trainees (from a more stabilized poststrike selection process) were compared with two previous groups of Academy entrants. The impact of biodemographic characteristics on success in ATCS training was evaluated for all entrants, and then for gender and minority status subgroups. Also, results were obtained from the aptitude tests that were used to select the Academy entrants. Pooled within-groups correlations between the discriminating variables and the canonical discriminant function were calculated to determine the characteristics related to Academy pass/fail status. Some of the variables that were significantly related to Academy performance included high school math grades, personal performance expectations, age, and the number of times an ATCS applicant had taken the qualifying aptitude tests. The most consistent and most important predictor of success was the average grade in high school mathematics courses, while other predictors had varying significance depending on the demographic subgroup. While the age of Academy students (despite the age-30 limitation) bears a strong and consistent relationship to Academy success, other biodemographic factors can be used to improve recruitment and selection of ATCSs.

Gender, Equity, and Job Satisfaction( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although equity theory has served as a theoretical framework applying to most individuals in most situations, empirical research suggests that gender may affect the utility of equity theory in explaining organizational behaviors. Studies have indicated that men are lost likely than women to distribute outcomes to individuals in direct proportion to their input. This gender difference has brought about considerable research interest and concern for implications in work groups and in supervisor-subordinate interactions. Brockner and Adsit (1986) noted an important but untested implications that the equity norm is more salient for men than it is for women. They argued that men's satisfaction with an exchange relationship should be influenced by the presence or absence of equity more so than women's satisfaction. They reported data indicating that the equity-satisfaction relationship was considerably stronger among men than among women. The Brockner and Adsit (1986) finding has an important implication for organizations theory, namely that equity perceptions may be more salient among men than women in the development of job satisfaction. Replication of their findings would suggest a need for further research in this area and a possible utility of different strategies for managing men and women for purposes of promoting job satisfaction with a focus on equity-related issues and antecedents
