In my last research update just a couple days ago, I mentioned that the new issue of IJSA should be coming out soon.
I think they heard me because it came out literally the next day.
So let's take a look:
- This study adds to our (relatively little) knowledge of sensitivity reviews of test items and finds much room for improvement
- More evidence that the utility of UIT isn't eliminated by cheating, this time with a speeded ability test
- Applicant motivation may be impacted by the intended scoring mechanism (e.g., objective vs. ratings).
- The validity of work experience in predicting performance is much debated*, but this study found support for it among salespersons, with personality also playing a moderating role.
- A study of the moderating effect of "good impression" responding on personality inventories
- This review provides a great addition to our knowledge of in-baskets (a related presentation can be found through IPAC)
- Another excellent addition, this time a study of faux pas on social networking websites in the context of employer assessment
- According to this study, assessors may adjust their decision strategy for immigrants (non-native language speakers)
- Letters of recommendation, in this study of nonmedical medical school graduate students, provided helpful information in predicting degree attainment
- Interactive multimedia simulations are here to stay, and this study adds to our confidence that these types of assessments can work well
Until next time!
