Work performance is an area of major interest for psychologists in their study of human behavior. The present study will investigate two important problems in this area. Phase I is concerned with criterion development. It is postulated that the bases which supervisors utilize in judging work performance are dependent upon the occupational group of which they are members as well as membership in the supervisory group, i.e. that membership in these groups to some extent determines the direction which supervisory expectations take with respect to work performance. It is hypothesized that the consistency of performance expectations of supervisory judges is a function of the homogeneity of the groups from which these judges are drawn. [TRUNCATED]
