Correctional Officers' Interest Blank


Author: Harrison G. Gough

The Correctional Officers’ Interest Blank (COIB) consists of forty questions about interests and attitudes which, in the course of research spanning about twenty-five years, have been found to have good potential for predicting performance of correctional officers. The COIB is an attitude scale that identifies applicants and officers of both genders who possess the temperament and personal qualities required for work in correctional agencies and institutions. Scoring information is only by special license, primarily restricted to state and federal correctional agencies and penal institutions.
