Performance Testing – Why Doing Beats Claiming

Performance testing includes a broad range of assessment techniques that use realistic job scenarios, tools, equipment and stimuli to simulate actual job tasks.  Use of performance testing has long been a hallmark of solidly predictive assessment processes.  This session will explore the ins and outs of performance-based assessment, focusing on topics including the elements of design and administration, job-relatedness and defensibility and the enhanced psychometric properties and utility of performance testing.  Join us for a lively discussion of effective performance-based assessment.
