Hi John,

Back in the 1980s, Leaetta Hough published an excellent article on KSA narratives that she called the accomplishment record. The cite is below.

Take care,

Subject: [IPAC-List] KSA Validity Studies?

Hi Folks!
All of us are familiar with KSA narratives, even though they are less commonly the first hurdle in U.S. Federal hiring. They are still with us.
Can anybody point me to a validity study of KSA narratives? Or anything close to it?
Help in this area would be much appreciated!
