Instrumentality Theory
Suppose two corresponding items, one from the dimension being rated
and its mate, the relative importance of that topic, called the "valence",
are cross-multiplied, then added up across all such pairs, then divided
by the number of such pairs. This procedure provides a weighted
score, the sum of the items each weighted by its relative importance.
The higher the average weighted score, the greater the overall
importance and rating of the topic. The technique has been well-liked
since two issues are being considered here, how satisfied or prepared
or . . . someone is, and how important that topic is to them. The
approach has been applied to multivariate issues such as factors
affecting leaving an organization, job satisfaction, managerial
behavior, etc.
