Book Description :

This second edition provides managers and students the nuts and bolts of assessment processes and selection techniques. With this knowledge, managers learn to make informed personnel decisions based on the results of tests and assessments. The book emphasizes that employee performance predictions require well-formed hypotheses about personal characteristics that may be related to valued behavior at work. It also stresses 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. Topics such as team-member selection, situational judgment tests, nontraditional tests, individual assessment, and testing for diversity are explored. The book covers both basic and advanced concepts in personnel selection in a straightforward, readable style intended to be used in both undergraduate and graduate courses in Personnel Selection and Assessment.

Book Description :

The only pocket-size reference on supervising psychological testing and assessment In 2014, the American Psychological Association (APA) adopted a set of guidelines for clinical supervision for health service psychology. While technically covered by these guidelines, supervising clinical psychological assessment includes additional tasks (such as ensuring accurate administration, scoring, and interpretation of tests) and tensions. Supervisors must often instruct supervisees on the data-integration process—which can involve more direct teaching than standard clinical supervision—while encompassing the same interpersonal, therapeutic, and less structured guiding aspects as psychotherapy supervision. It is increasingly common to view clinical supervision in the assessment process and supervision of psychotherapy as two significantly different tasks. Surprisingly, there is very little training and guidance available on appropriate, effective, and beneficial methods of psychological assessment supervision. Essentials of Psychological Assessment Supervision seeks to remedy the lack of literature in this area, offering guidance on supervising psychological testing and assessment. This much-needed guide provides supervisors with authoritative, up-to-date information on guidelines relevant to assessment supervision. Additionally, detailed coverage of supervision of cognitive, personality/emotional, psychoeducational, neuropsychological, forensic, and therapeutic assessments, among others, provide supervisors with guidance and structure in the supervision process. Focusing on practical application, this book offers guidance on topics such as assessment models appropriate in different areas of assessment; diversity issues; evaluation and feedback of supervisee performance; and ethical, legal, and regulatory considerations relevant in each assessment context. An invaluable resource for practitioners, this book: Offers practical advice on supervising a wide range of clinical psychological assessments Includes contributions from experts in their respective subfields Provides guidance on incorporating new American Psychological Association (APA) and Society for Personality Assessment (SPA) guidelines into the supervision process Fills an urgent need for an up-to-date reference on assessment supervision Essentials of Psychological Assessment Supervision is a must-have reference for both psychology practitioners who supervise the assessment process and instructors of psychological testing and assessment.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

Essentials of Personnel Assessment and Selection discusses the essentials that managers and other well-educated people should know about the assessment processes so widely used in contemporary society--and so widely not understood. 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 goal is to produce an accessible guide to assessment that covers basic and advanced concepts in a straight-forward, readable style. It provides a review of the most relevant statistical concepts and modern selection practices that will equip the reader with the tools needed to be competent consumers of assessment procedures and practices, and to be well-informed about the kinds of questions to be answered in evaluating them. This book will appeal to instructors of advanced undergraduate and master's level courses on personnel selection and assessment. If supplemented by other readings on selected topics, it would be useful in doctoral seminars. Also, students interested in becoming users of research-based assessment and selection information and techniques will find it useful.
