Topic: Psychometrics; Measuring Human Attributes For Industries And Organisations
Description: The research agenda is to develop and standardize the following scales; i. Quality of Work Life Scale QWLS for the Nigerian population ii. Intelligent Quotient Scale IQS for screening purposes in Nigerian industries and organisations.iii. Leadership Quotient Scale LQS for screening purposes in Nigerian industries and organisations iv. Entrepreneurial Quotient Scale EQS for screening would be entrepreneurs. These scales, which items will be empirically generated using combined expertise and opinion of experts in psychometrics and the subject matters listed, are to be proved for validity and reliability through factor exploration and confirmatory analysis. The outcomes should serve the objective of providing measuring scales that are content specific to Nigerian industries and organisations. They should also serve to diminish the current abuse of tests as blindly applied by human resource managers who had relied on tests developed abroad with little known norm, validity and sub-cultural adaptation to the specific needs of end users.

Self-Efficacy, Self-Esteem and Entrepreneurial Abilities of Professional Human Resource Management Students.
Certain salient attributes of the entrepreneur have been accounted for in literature such as self-efficacy and self-esteem. The objective of the research is to find out the link among these variables. Data was collected from 250 male and female post-graduate students of human resource and industrial relations, Lagos State University, Ojo. Analysis of data will use factorial analysis to examine the independent variables, subject to sub-factors like gender and type of industry will influence entrepreneurial abilities. The extent of the influence will be examined using regression and factorial, logistic and other analyses to evaluate the degree of influence of the independent variables on entrepreneurial abilities. The outcome will add interesting depth to existing knowledge of factors that are fingered as important to entrepreneurship. In a similar fashion as described above, using data collected from the same source, two additional studies are mapped out as follows:ii. Tolerance of Ambiguity, Autonomy, and Entrepreneurial Abilities of Professional Human Resource Management Students. iii. Creativity, gender, and Entrepreneurial Abilities of Professional Human Resource Management Students. Three papers are therefore expected to be published from the data so collected which at the moment are being analyzed.
