Analyzing and Interpreting Psychosocial Assessments

MODULE 1
Topic 1: Analyzing and Interpreting Psychosocial Assessments
DQ 1
One of the most important applications of I/O psychology is assessment in the workplace. Assessment includes applicant selection and employee evaluation. What factors should be considered in choosing an appropriate assessment? Using current research, argue why assessment is important and discuss factors that impact assessment in selection or in development.
DQ 2
Any form of assessment must be valid and reliable. Given your understanding of validity and reliability, what are factors that influence interpretation of assessment? Is this a problem? Is it a more significant problem in some domains over others? Justify your answer.

MODULE 2
Topic 2: Types of Tests and Test Selection
DQ 1
Selection of criteria for assessment is an important issue for I/O. It is not a simple issue and it moves beyond simply examining reliability and validity. Using criterion theory and development, defend good characteristics, acceptable criteria, and methods for choosing the appropriate test?
DQ 2
Examine current assessments in applicant selection and employee evaluation. Using current research and a set of criteria, argue why one assessment in applicant selection and one assessment in employee evaluation would be the most appropriate?
