Bedrosian Faculty Affiliate, William G. Resh presented at the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM) 2016 Fall Research Conference. APPAM is “dedicated to improving public policy and management by fostering excellence in research, analysis, and education.” Dr. Resh’s paper presentation for the Public Employee Motivations and Preferences panel was titled “Turning the Lens Back: Assessing the Quality of Public Management Research Using the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey.” The paper explores the extent to which researchers have established reliable and valid measures of various constructs using data from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS); the extent of rigor used in tests of causality and/or association; the ways in which FEVS data have been merged with data from other sources; and how scholars have used this survey to influence public management research and theory (for good and bad). The paper was coauthored with Sergio Fernandez, Indiana University.
