Overview

Situational Judgment Tests advances the science and practice of SJTs by promoting a theoretical framework, providing an understanding of best practices, and establishing a research agenda for years to come. Currently, there is no other source that provides such a comprehensive treatment of situational judgment testing.

Key features of this book include:

  • chapters rich with theoretical insights and future research possibilities;
  • numerous implications for improving the practical applications of SJTs, which include not only SJT development and scoring, but also operational issues affecting test administration and interpretation;
  • comprehensive summaries of published and unpublished SJT research; and
  • chapters that address topics that are timely and current, such as issues involving the international application of SJTs and technological considerations.

This text is relevant for academics, practitioners, and students of human resource management, organizational behavior, management, and industrial/organizational psychology. This book is new in SIOP's Organizational Frontiers Series, publications of the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this book provides an outstanding introduction and overview of situational judgment testing. The collection of chapters provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of the field. Most of the readings would be accessible to upper level undergraduates....would also recommend it to any graduate student in industrial-organizational psychology who is looking for ideas for research projects."
—PsycCRITIQUES

"This volume obviously is a must-read for practitioners already designating, validating, and employing STJs.. A good deal of this volume is comprised of contributions that offfer fresh, interesting, theory-based directions for future selection research generally. I therefore recommend this volume to the broad audience of those academics and practitioners interested in the psychology of talent acquisition. They will find much of interest in Situational Judgment Tests, whether or not they are particularly interested in the SJT technique itself." - Seymour Adler, Aon Consulting
