Studies in job evaluation: 8. The reliability of an abbreviated job evaluation system
Abstract5 raters––2 management, 2 union employees, and 1 superintendent––evaluated 43 manufacturing jobs on the 4 items of the abbreviated scale. The abbreviated system gave a reliability coefficient of .98 for the 5 raters and showed the same pattern of reliability for total points and the individual scales as the Lawshe-Wilson study. Management reliabilities were higher than union employees. "Learning period" and "general schooling" were the most stable factors.
