Abstract : Expectancy theory suggests that behavior can be predicted from the probability that the behavior leads to various outcomes weighted by the evaluation of these outcomes. These variables successfully predicted the effort exerted by faculty members in an acedemic job. Effort was then combined with estimates of ability and role perceptions to predict three separate measures of faculty performance (Peer ratings, Dean's ratings, and publications). The relative merits of both multiplicative and additive models which successfully predicted performance are discussed. (Modified author abstract)
