Summary

The study integrates various elements of past approaches to job design. It focuses on determining individual characteristics associated with performance and work satisfaction on a simulated maintenance task designed to be seen as low in job structural attributes (LJSA) by one group and the same task designed to be perceived as high in job structural attributes (HJSA) by a second group of subjects. Simple and multiple associations of quantity, quality, and satisfaction of individual differences in ability, personality, and preference measures were examined under these two manipulated job characteristic conditions. A sample of 26 male and 34 female undergraduate students, divided into low and high condition groups, participated in the experiment which consisted of three phases: (1) test battery designed to measure general and specific abilities, (2) the Rod and Frame Test and the Attribute Preference Scale, and (3) the actual experimental task. The results indicated that the psychologically manipulated expectations of task structural attributes moderated the relationships between ability measures and both quantity and quality of performance and task satisfaction. The data are presented in 49 tables. Appended materials include a list of references and additional tables. (Author/EC)
