Abstract: Although ratings of overall job performance are a common criterion measure in I/O psychology, research dedicated to understanding how overall performance is conceptualized by the individuals responsible for evaluating performance is limited. In this study, performance data collected from the immediate supervisors of state troopers was used to examine the relationship between dimension ratings and ratings of overall performance. Hierarchical linear modeling analyses indicated that, while both aspects of performance contribute to ratings of overall performance, the relationship between contextual performance and overall ratings varied across supervisors. Hypotheses were offered regarding characteristics of the supervisor and the work context that might explain this variance, but were not supported. Implications for practice and directions for future research are discussed.
