Test Bank Introduction The Test Bank offers over 1,800 true/false, multiple-choice, and short answer questions from which to choose. In addition, the authors also provide clearly distinct questions to test each of the three components of the text—theory, application, and skill development. Half of each chapter of the Test Bank contains questions specifically designed to implement the three-prong approach of the text. Questions are included that cover Learning Outcomes, Review Questions, “Applying the Concept” boxes, “Work Application” boxes, Communication Skills, and Skill-Development Exercises. The second half of each chapter of the Test Bank contains true/false, multiple-choice, and short-answer questions to test basic information from the chapter. Following each question is the correct answer, and the corresponding learning outcome is given for each true/false and multiple-choice question. This allows the instructor to choose questions based on the learning outcomes he or she is targeting. Following are examples of each of the specialized question sets with a key to the solution used in each instance. All examples are taken from Chapter 3 in the text. Learning Outcomes (LO) Explanation. These questions assess student understanding of leadership theory. The learning outcomes and answers are taken word-for-word from the textbook. Example question and answer: 1. List the University of Iowa leadership styles. ANS: The University of Iowa leadership styles are autocratic and democratic. PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: Conceptual OBJ: TYPE: LO 1 NAT: AACSB Reflective Thinking | Leadership Principles Solution explanation: PTS:=points (The default is 1, but you can change this when you construct your tests.) DIF:=difficulty level. ANS:=answer. REF:=component of text being tested (theory concepts, applications, skill development). TYPE:=type of question. LO=learning outcome. 1=question number of learning outcome. Each learning outcome is used only once. The correct answer is also at the end of the chapter in the summary. Review Questions (RQ) Explanation. These questions assess student understanding of leadership theory. The review and discussion questions are taken word-for-word from the textbook. The answers are also in the Instructor’s Manual. Example question and answer: 1. Why was there a shift from the trait to the behavioral theory paradigm? ANS: The trait theory paradigm was seeking to find a set of traits that explained and predicted effective leadership. However, the researchers could not find a universal list of traits, so they turned their attention to identifying the differences in the behavior of effective leaders versus ineffective leaders. PTS: 1 DIF: Medium REF: Conceptual OBJ: TYPE: RQ 1 NAT: AACSB Reflective Thinking | Leadership Principles Solution explanation: TYPE:=type of question. RQ=review questions. 1= question number. Each Review Question is used only once. The answer is also in the Instructor’s Manual. Applying the Concept (AC) Explanation: These questions assess student ability to apply the leadership theory to a given situation. AC questions are similar but not identical to the AC boxes in the textbook. Example question and answer: 1. The manager is showing an employee how to perform an audit check in inventory. The manager is using which leadership style? a. job-centered b. employee-centered

Test Bank Introduction

ANS: A PTS: 1 DIF: Medium REF: Applications OBJ: TYPE: AC 1 NAT: AACSB Analytic | Leadership Principles Solution explanation: A=letter of correct answer. TYPE:=type of question. AC=Applying the Concept. 1 is the number of the boxed AC series of questions that the question is based on. (Note that there are usually 3–5 AC boxes per chapter. Thus, each AC box number [1, 2, etc.] is used for multiple questions.) Work Applications (WA) Explanation. These questions assess student ability to apply the leadership theory to their own work experience. The work application questions are taken word-for-word from the textbook. However, students will have different answers (there is no one right answer), so no actual answers are given. Example question and answer: 1. Recall a present or past manager. Which of the University of Iowa leadership styles does or did your manager use most often? Describe the behavior of your manager. ANS: Students’ answers will vary. PTS: 1 DIF: Medium REF: Applications OBJ: TYPE: WA 1 NAT: AACSB Reflective Thinking | Leadership Principles Solution explanation: TYPE:=type of question. WA=work application. 1=number of WA box taken from chapter. Each WA is used only once. Communication Skills (CS) Explanation. These questions assess students’ ability to communication about leadership theory. The communication skills are taken word-for-word from the textbook. Students will have different answers (there is no one right answer), so no actual answers are given. Example question and answer: 1. Which leadership model do you prefer? ANS: Students’ answers will vary. PTS: 1 DIF: Easy REF: Skills OBJ: TYPE: CS 1 NAT: AACSB Reflective Thinking | Leadership Principles Solution explanation: TYPE:=type of question. CS=communication skills. 1= question number. Each Communication Skills question is used only once. Skill-Development Exercises (SD) Explanation. These questions assess student skill at using the leadership theory. Most chapters, not all, have skilldevelopment questions to assess skill development. The questions are based on the skill-development exercises, but are not identical. The questions and answers also appear in the Instructor’s Manual. Example question and answer: 1. Write the four steps of the writing objectives model and, below it, write a job-related objective that meets the criteria for setting objectives. ANS: (1) To + (2) action verb + (3) single, specific, measurable result + (4) target date Written objectives will vary. PTS: 1 DIF: Medium REF: Skills OBJ: TYPE: SD 1 NAT: AACSB Reflective Thinking | Motivation Concepts

SD=skill development. 1=number of skill-development exercise in textbook. There can be multiple questions from the same exercise—thus, the same number may be used multiple times. When possible, a correct answer will be given. However, sometimes there is no one correct answer.
