Study 1: An industrial/organizational psychologist wants to examine the best predictors of job performance at her company. The organization evaluates employees once a year using the “Employee Performance Evaluation” – a form that evaluates employees on ten important job dimensions and results in scores of 10 through 100 with 100 being indicative of outstanding performance. The other variables available for examination include gender, college grade point average (GPA), and interview score (which ranges from 30 to 80 with a higher score being more positive). The data for the employees of the organization are presented below.
