Abstract : As is so often the case, practical considerations served as the primary motivation for the present research. Administrative concern had surfaced over the need to update the existing methods used to screen and select applications for the position of Guard for the University of Texas Police Department (UTPD). The desire was to develop entry-level assessment procedures that would assist in predicting subsequent job performance levels and in reducing high employee turnover rates, while still complying with the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (1978).
