Predicting Success in Higher-Level Positions: A Guide to the System for Testing and Evaluation of Potential

By Melany E. Baehr | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The research underlying the System for Testing and Evaluation of Potential (STEP) program was initiated in the early 1970s at the Human Resources Center of The University of Chicago. The Human Resources Center was an interdisciplinary organization with faculty representatives from the behavioral sciences, education, and business administration. The STEP project was a group effort conducted primarily by the Human Resources Research and Development Division of the Center, with contributions from a number of the Center's other professional members.

I wish to express my gratitude to all of the Center's faculty and staff who contributed to the project. In particular, I am indebted to Dr. Wallace G. Lonergan, Director of the Center, for his support over the years and for his personal participation in the project. I am also deeply appreciative of the varied contributions of my long-time professional associate and Technical Editor, the late Frances M. Burns. I am indebted to the Center's Measurement Analysis and Research Laboratory for data processing and to the Laboratory's Director, Mr. Ernest C. Froemel, for his professional contribution to and continuing interest in the project.

An uneasy period in the history of the project came after the closing of the Human Resources Center in 1982, when the future of the accumulated data banks, psychological measurement instruments, and ongoing research studies was uncertain. The project's uninterrupted continuation was ensured through a grant provided by Mr. J. Patrick Rooney, Chief Executive Officer of the Golden Rule Insurance Company, to whom I tender my grateful thanks. The project was eventually continued under the jurisdiction of The University of Chicago's Office of Continuing Edu
