Pre- to posttest increases for GORT-4 Comprehension and ORQ were nonsignificant.
Pretreatment GORT-4 ORQs were used to classify participants by reading ability: "average" was an ORQ > 85, "below average" ORQ of 84-77, and "significantly below average" 76 or less, 1.
63%, and the average nonresponse rate for the ORQ
For the ORQ
and PSQ scales, higher T scores were associated with higher levels of maladaptive stress.
zBurnout scores also correlated positively with all five subscales of the ORQ, as expected and were consistent with previous research on the relationship between burnout and work environment.
All five subscales of the ORQ remained significant predictors of zBurnout even when controlling for both demographic and personality variables.
Data from a normative population (derived from 909 adults employed in a variety of professional, managerial, and technical positions) indicate that scores of [greater than or equal to]70 for the ORQ and the PSQ domains and scores of [less than or equal to]30 on the PRQ domain occur in approximately only 2% of the population and are statistically abnormal.
In the ORQ domain, 22 physicians (32%) scored [greater than or equal to]70 on at least one subscale, indicating significant maladaptive stress.
Of the 22 physicians with abnormal scores in the ORQ domain, 16 had abnormal scores only in this domain, indicating abnormal stress, but not psychological strain or poor coping mechanisms.
7% of the selected sample (n = 30) still recorded ORQ scores at or below the 1st percentile, while 8.
At post-test, a large number of participants still recorded ORQs below the 1st percentile, even though significant gains had been made on 3 of the 4 reading sub-tests.
