About the Event
Although situational judgment tests (SJTs) have a long history in the personnel selection literature, there have been some recent developments in how they are designed, administered, and scored. Small design considerations can have a large impact on the quality of the SJT as a tool in selecting new employees. In this workshop, I review evidence concerning reliability, construct-related validity, criterion-related validity, subgroup differences, fakability, and acceptability, and how these selection test criteria are impacted by the design of the SJT. Then, I focus on several promising new developments regarding the way SJTs are designed and scored, including the use of construct-driven design approaches, constructed response formats, and alternative (implicit) response instructions.
