Abstract : In a former study by Wherry, Ross, and Wolins two job analyses, one on the basis of psychological skills required and the other on the basis of job operations performed, were used along with other indices to indicate the equivalence of 10 criteria of job success. In a second paper the authors made a theoretical analysis and suggested further research. The present paper attempts to carry out these suggestions by investigating several facets of the problem including types of elements, skills, operations, or factors; types of rating; and types of statistical analysis.
