The Methods of Monitoring Scale by Niehoff and Ghartey-Tagoe (1991)
For this study‚ we added items measuring parts of the constructs that were not adequately represented in the original scales and deleted items that seemed to stray from the intended constructs. The resulting scales were observation‚ five items‚ manager-initiated discussions‚ five items‚ and formal meetings‚ three items. All items were measured on a six point scale ranging from "behavior not exhibited" to "behavior exhibited more than once per day."
