Evaluating Assessment Instruments
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 11 in the textbook, the article by Baez (2013), the assigned chapters in the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (2006) guide, and view the video Psychometric testing and employment..
For this discussion, you will use the PSY640 Checklist for Evaluating Tests document to compare two assessment instruments used in industrial and organizational (I-O) psychology assessment. Based on the information in your text and assigned readings, select and evaluate two psychological tests used in industrial-organizational psychological assessment. You may not evaluate any of the tests you evaluated in the Week Four Applications in Personality Testing discussion.
In addition to the text, locate a minimum of two appropriate scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources to aid you in the analysis of the psychometric properties of the instruments based on published data. In your initial post, provide the names of the two tests you evaluated, and attach your completed PSY640 Checklist for Evaluating Tests document. You must maintain the original format of the document and include the textbook and two additional scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources in the references section.
Evaluate the analysis presented by your colleague, including an explanation of each of the following elements: the dimensions of completeness, accuracy, and professional credibility of the analysis. Use your research and the assigned readings to support your assertions.
Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) on Day 7 of the week and respond to anyone who replies to your initial post.
