    Question Designing an experiment

    Could you plz answer this question?

    A firm is attempting to evaluate the quality of its sales staff and is trying to find an examination, or series of tests, that may reveal the potential for good performance in sales.
    The firm is proposing to select a random sample of salespeople and will evaluate each on 3 measures of performance: growth of sales, profitability of sales and new account sales. Each of these measures will be measured on a scale for which a score of 100 indicates "average' performance. The firm is also proposing to give each of the subjects in the study aptitude tests on Creativity, Abstract Reasoning and Mathematical ability.

    Assume that you are a statistical consultant and the firm has made an appointment with you to discuss the design and statistical analysis of their study. Outline a series of questions that you would ask their representatives to obtain detailed information and with the information given so far indicate probable advice that you will be giving the firm.
