Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

13 Scopus citations


In a recent article, Landy, Vance, Barnes-Farrell, and Steele (1980) suggested a method for excluding halo variance in rating scales. Their approach, however, may result in excluding true variance as well. The present work suggests a conceptualization of the halo effect in terms of a suppressor variable. Accordingly, a multiple regression approach for the treatment of halo variance is suggested.
