Abstract : This report describes the development of the Situational Judgment Test (SJT), the development and evaluation of basic SJT scores, explorations of the dimensionality of the SJT, and detailed investigations of the relationships between SJT scores and scores on temperament, cognitive ability, and other job performance measures. The SJT was developed to be a criterion measure of supervisory job knowledge and administered to over 1,OOO second-tour Noncommissioned Officers (NCOs) in the U.S. Army. These data were used, along with several rational approaches, to explore the dimensionality of the SJT. Relationships between SJT total scores, several experimental SJT subscores, and scores on the other available measures were also examined, and structural modeling was used to test several hypotheses concerning reasons for some of the relationships that were found. Finally, conclusions were drawn, based on the results of these analyses, concerning what the SJT measures.
