Carry a great deal of weight in the selection process. Can be biased toward those who “interview well.” Should be structured to ensure against distortion due to interviewers’ biases. Are better for assessing applied mental skills, conscientiousness, interpersonal skills, and person-organization fit of the applicant. Selection Devices (cont’d) Written Tests Renewed employer interest in testing applicants for: Intelligence: trainable to do the job? Aptitude: could do job? Ability: can do the job? Interest (attitude): would/will do the job? Integrity: trust to do the job? Tests must show validated connection to job-related performance requirements.
