MGNT In principle, and attribute can be measured objectively, or subjectively, and sometimes both are used. Research shows that when an attribute is measured by both objective and subjective means, there is often relatively low agreement between scores from the two types of measures. E.g., the attribute of “job performance.” it may be measured objectively through quantity of output, and it may be measured subjectively through performance appraisal ratings. A review of the research shows that there is very low correlation between scores from the objective and subjective performance measures. Undoubtedly, the raters’ lack of sound scoring systems for rating job performance was a major contributor to the lack of obtained agreement. Thus, whatever type of measure is being used to assess attributes in staffing, serious attention should be paid to the scoring system or key that is used. It is simply another way of emphasizing the importance of standardization in measurement.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
