Hunter, Schmidt, and Jackson's (1982) meta-analytic procedure was used to compare the relationships of the corresponding scales of the Job Diagnostic Survey and the Job Characteristics Inventory with work satisfaction and performance. The results suggest convergence in the estimated population correlations of the alternative identity and feedback scales with both satisfaction and performance. The results further indicate similarity in the estimated relationships of the alternative autonomy scales with performance and the alternative variety scales with satisfaction. In contrast, dissimilarity was found in the estimated relationships of the alternative variety scales with performance and the alternative autonomy scales with satisfaction. The latter dissimilarity was particularly substantial. Implications of the present findings are discussed.
