Abstract:A sixteen-item employee engagement scale was supplemented with items developed from literature review, from related scales, and from text mining narrative responses to an open-ended question about improving employee performance. The text mining procedure is described and may be useful to other scale developers. Some items derived from text mining performed as well as those developed using traditional methods. Possible modifications and extensions of the method are suggested.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
