Abstract

Used quantitative measures of job components as the basis for estimation of the mean level of each of 5 aptitude constructs that were characteristics of incumbents in various types of jobs. The measures of the job components were job dimension scores, based on the Position Analysis Questionnaire, and the criterion for each construct for each job was the mean test score of incumbents on various tests considered to measure the same constructs, converted to a common metric. The possible relevance of such estimates to validity generalization–or what might be called job component validity–is discussed. (6 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
