Module 1 - SLP


SLP Assignment Overview

Predicting Job Performance

A 2014 study by Judge and Papata found that all personality traits are more predictive of job performance when the work was performed in an unstructured environment where employees have the freedom to make personal choices. In addition, the study found that the employees' traits also indicated how they would act in a situation because of those traits.

Most people find that they are generally correct, but they all have a surprise or two. Did you know that your results would be different if you repeated the test a couple of hours later? This is because as you read your first test results, you rationalize why the findings were correct or incorrect and then you try to change up your answers in an attempt to change your results. If you were to retake the test after a much longer period of time, your results may also be different. This is because your frame of mind when taking a test also impacts the answers you select.

To combat people changing their answers to get a “better” result, test designers reframe questions in several ways, inserting multiple ways to ask the same question. Some test-takers are bothered by the repetition of questions, most likely because they do not realize it is done intentionally. However, if they were to list all the repeat questions, they would find that they are all written differently.

SLP Assignment

In the Module 1 Case, you had the opportunity to examine employee behaviors and how they might impact the workplace.

In this assignment you will look at three personality tests which are popular in business today and try to determine if we can accurately assess the personalities of employees or potential employees. One popular way is through various assessment tools, such as questionnaires.

Spend some time taking each of the following tests:

1. Jung Personality Test, test/

2. Personality Test by Edwin van Thiel,

What characteristics are measured in the tests you took? Were your test results what you expected?

Next, take the DISC Personality Test, personality-test/

Discuss the differences in the DISC areas of measurement with the other tests you took.

Read the descriptions of the characteristic categories for each. Keeping those personality characteristics in mind, think about how they affect your own work attitude and job performance.

Address the following questions related to topics covered in this Module in a 2- to 3-page paper, not counting the cover and reference list pages.

What are your personality characteristics? In what ways do they affect your attitude at work?

How does your work attitude affect your job performance and behavior?

Then, meet with your manager or a coworker who knows you well, and discuss your findings in one or more of the personality tests. Discuss how your manager or coworker sees you compared to your test results. Include a paragraph of at least 75 words covering the highlights of your discussion with that person.

(If you are not currently working, you can select a family member, friend, or someone else who knows you well to complete this part of the assignment.)

Support your responses to the questions in this 2- to 3-page assignment with at least one high-quality reference from the Trident Online Library. High-quality references come from peer-reviewed academic journals and textbooks. All references must be properly cited and included on the References page. Remember to spell check your submission. In addition, check for the correct use of basic APA formatting of the document and references, such as the use of Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced paragraphs, paragraphs indented ½ inch, margins on all four sides of the paper set at 1 inch, and bolded headings. You can use another formatting style, such as Chicago or MLA, as long as you use it consistently throughout your paper; however, if you use APA formatting, practice using the 7th edition. This paper is all about you, so it is perfectly fine to respond to assignment questions in the first person. Upload your assignment to the SLP 1 Dropbox. Be sure to review your TurnItIn Originality report. If the score is over 15%, contact your professor. You need to review the report and add any missing citations as noted on the report.
