Description:

This second edition continues in the tradition of the first edition by giving managers and students the nuts and bolts of assessment processes and selection techniques. The book provides current and future managers with the knowledge and tools required to make informed personnel decisions based upon the results of tests and assessments. It emphasizes that good prediction requires well-formed hypotheses about personal characteristics that may be related to valued behavior at work and the need for developing a theory of the attribute one hypothesizes as a predictor--a thought process too often missing from work on selection procedures. In addition, it explores such topics as team-member selection, situational judgment tests, non-traditional tests, individual assessment, and testing for diversity. The books covers both basic and advanced concepts in personnel selection in a straight-forward readable style intended to be used in both undergraduate and graduate courses in Personnel Selection and Assessment.
