MINNESOTA SATISFACTORINESS SCALES

 

Description

The Minnesota Satisfactoriness Scales (MSS) is designed to measure an employee's satisfactoriness on a job. The MSS is usually completed by the employee's supervisor, who evaluates the employee on 28 items describing the employee's behavior on the job. The MSS provides scores on five scales:

Performance
Conformance
Dependability
Personal Adjustment
General Satisfactoriness

The MSS can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of job placement or the success of specific training programs, or to compare the individual's self-perceptions of performance with the perceptions of a supervisor.

Format

The MSS is a paper-and-pencil inventory of 28 variables used to rate the satisfactoriness of an employee's job performance. It is appropriate for use with individuals who can read at the fifth grade level or higher.

The MSS is gender neutral. It can be administered to groups or to individuals. Instructions for the administration of the MSS are in the booklet. The MSS usually requires about 5 minutes to complete, which makes it feasible to administer by mail.
