Abstract

THIS STUDY WILL FILL GAPS IN ARMY RESEARCH ON MEASURES AND NORMS OF MORALE, SOCIAL CLIMATE, AND JOB SATISFACTION INDICATORS. ULTIMATELY, THE RESEARCH WILL YIELD A HANDBOOK OF INSTRUMENTS FOR MEASURING THESE INDICATORS AMONG U.S. ARMY PERSONNEL AND UNITS. THAT HANDBOOK WILL DETAIL THE PSYCHOMETRIC PROPERTIES OF THE MEASURES AND WILL GIVE NORMATIVE DATA FROM EACH INSTRUMENT AMONG U.S. ARMY PERSONNEL. THE STUDY WILL ACCOMPLISH THREE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES RELATED TO THE MEASUREMENT OF AND NORMS FOR SOCIAL CLIMATE INDICATORS. THESE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES ARE FIRST, TO IDENTIFY AND COMPILE MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS OF SOCIAL CLIMATE INDICATORS TO INCLUDE PSYCHOMETRIC PROPERTIES, AVAILABLE NORMATIVE DATA, AND MEASURES SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED FOR USE IN U.S. ARMY APPLICATIONS. SECOND, THE STUDY WILL DEFINE AND OPERATIONALIZE SOCIAL CLIMATE CONSTRUCTS FOR WHICH NO MEASURES EXIST AND FOR WHICH MEASURES RELATED TO ARMY APPLICATIONS ARE NEEDED. AND, THIRD, THE STUDY WILL DESCRIBE A RESEARCH PLAN FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCALES RESPONSIVE TO CONSTRUCTS IDENTIFIED EARLIER, INCLUDING PSYCHOMETRIC TESTING PROCEDURES AND THE COLLECTION OF ARMY NORMATIVE DATA.
