In addition to developing the PSQ, Study I also involved an exploration of players' perceptions of the power of coaches and officials and the perceptions of coaches and officials with respect to their own power.
Questions for the PSQ were developed in three ways.
To examine the test-retest reliability of the PSQ, the track team head coach was contacted two months after the initial testing session to set up a second session.
To examine the test-retest reliability of the PSQ, the officials who returned the first mailing were sent a second packet three months after receiving the first packet.
Study 2 was designed to expand on the construct validity of the PSQ documented in Study 1 by examining the criterion validity of the instrument.
All applications are considered for an interim secret or interim confidential clearance even though the PSQs reflect some derogatory information and the DCII referenced a prior file.
However, in November 1986, DISCO began to process applications for interim secret and interim confidential clearances without requiring a letter of justification from the contracting officer in instances where the FSO specifically stated on the PSQ that an interim clearance was needed.
