Technology-Enhanced Assessment of Talent (a volume in the Jossey-Bass SIOP Professional Practice series) is filled with research-based guidelines that are designed to help practitioners make better decisions on using technology to assess talent at all levels of the organization. The book offers a review of the various ways technology can enhance the administrative ease, credibility, validity, and cost effectiveness of assessments used in the candidate evaluation and selection processes and provides a series of case studies that demonstrate effective usage.
Edited by Nancy Tippins and Seymour Adler—two experts on employee assessment—this important resource shows how to balance the opportunities of technologically-enhanced assessments with the potential challenges to the validity of the measurements produced by these tools. They identify the key measurement, administrative, and legal factors that need to be considered in assuring that virtual assessments generate useable and useful information. The book explores important topics such as cheating, faking, equivalence with paper and pencil forms, fairness, validity, and bias.
The book contains illustrative case examples from organizations world-wide on the use of technology-enhanced assessments in real-life settings from both the private and public sectors. These cases provide a description of the particular solution adopted, the implementation of the system and ts ongoing maintenance, success metrics, and lessons learned.
Looking to the future, the authors offer an agenda for future practice and research on technologically enhanced assessments. Technologies are likely to emerge that open opportunities for new ways of creating, delivering, and using assessments in organizations. They examine the wide range of theoretical and methodological issues that need to be addressed so that practice in this exploding area is more effective.
