ARTICLES.

Motivation to Learn and Diversity Training: Application of the Theory of Planned Behavior (Carolyn Wiethoff)
This article examines the theory of planned behavior and applies it to diversity training. Several hypotheses are offered to influence motivation to learn from a diversity program. Implications for research and practice are identified.

The Effects of Organizational Learning Culture and Job Satisfaction on Motivation to Transfer Learning and Turnover Intention (Toby Marshall Egan, Baiyin Yang, Kenneth R. Bartlett)
This study gathered data from information technology professions using a Web-based version of the Dimensions of Learning Organization Questionnaire. Results from structural equation modeling showed learning organizational culture to have a positive relationship with job satisfaction and motivation to transfer and a negative relationship with intention to transfer (as mediated by job satisfaction).

The Development of a Multirater Instrument for Assessing Employee Problem-Solving Skill (Margaret C. Lohman)
A modification of the Problem-Solving Rating Scale was used to examine employee and supervisory ratings of problem-solving skill. Testretest reliability appeared to be low for employees’ self-ratings, and supervisor ratings of employees were lower than the employee selfratings. These results have implications for multirater assessments.

Team Assessment When Members Have Low Reading Proficiency (Glenn E. Littlepage, Grant Brower)
The Team Excellence survey was revised to reduce the reading level from a tenth- to a fifth-grade level. A sample of fifty-two undergraduates completed the original and the simplified forms. The two forms showed similar psychometric properties. Thus, the simplified form may be useful when team members possess low reading levels.
