Introduction to the Instructor’s Manual and Test Bank for Psychology Applied to Work®

Teaching Styles

It is worthwhile to note that no two instructors use the same style of teaching. How we teach is a function of many factors, including our degree of experience with the subject matter, the size of our class, our preference for various forms of pedagogy, and our overall degree of comfort in having adopted a particular style. Our different teaching styles manifest themselves in the preferred use of dry erase markers, overhead slides, or PowerPoint slides; straight lectures; class exercises; class discussions; use of student presentations; individual and team student projects; and so on. This Instructor’s Manual and Test Bank (IMTB) was designed to accommodate the wide range of styles that instructors use. Please feel free to pick and choose what works best for you, ranging from preferred manner of instruction to preferred manner of student assessment. If over the years you have developed some particularly effective approaches and would be willing to share them with others, please contact us and we will try to include them in the IMTB for the next edition of the text.


The format of every chapter is the same. You can count on consistency in the presentation of material across all 14 chapters of the IMTB. We fully recognize you may have some personal favorites of your own that you like to use, in addition to what is presented here to assist you. The IMTB contains nine features for each chapter.

  1. Lecture Outline. The IMTB presents an outline for each chapter. Included are the major headings, secondary headings, and substantive material of each chapter.
  2. PowerPoint Slides. Material that can be converted to PowerPoint slides is presented for each chapter. For each chapter the material  consists of: 1) the Learning Objectives; 2) all the figures and tables presented; and 3) the Chapter Summary
  3. Instructor Tips: I offer three teaching tips per chapter on the basis of having taught I/O psychology for forty years.
  4. Classroom Exercises: For instructors who like to animate subject matter with a classroom exercise, I offer two such exercises per chapter.
  5. Classroom Discussion Topics: Five classroom discussion topics are presented for each chapter. Instructors may also use the four features presented in each chapter as a further basis of discussion: two Field Notes (in yellow); I/O Psychology and the Economy (in green); and Cross-Cultural I/O Psychology (in blue).
  6. Case Study Analysis. Every chapter (except Chapter 1) concludes with a case study. Five questions are posed about the case. This section proposes ways to address the questions.
  7. Multiple-Choice Test Questions: Forty multiple choice test questions drawn from the text (and the answer key) are presented.
  8. Short-Answer Questions: The key terms in each chapter are presented in red. They are defined or described in the margin glossary (and there is a glossary of all key terms in the back of the book). The key terms in each chapter are presented for the students to define or describe. Please note there is no uniform number of key terms per chapter.
  9. Essay Test Questions: Five essay test questions are presented for each chapter.

Student Study Guide

In addition to the text, every student can download for free the Student Study Guide that accompanies this text. As the instructor, this Student Study Guide is also available for you. The Student Study Guide in no way is a substitute for reading the textbook. The Student Study Guide describes the major theme of each chapter, advice on how best to approach learning the material in each chapter, one exercise the student can perform to enhance learning, five sample multiple choice questions, and three essay questions.
