Whitepaper – Why Testing Matters

The whitepaper, Why Testing Matters, consists of a literature review based on the most recent job analysis research.

The use of different methods in personnel selection has a long history. Compared to earlier unscientific assessment methods such as graphology, standardised procedures and objective measures such as structured interviews, CVs, and psychometric tests have increased in popularity and use.

The current whitepaper briefly describes how and why the use of standardised psychometric tests are superior to other assessment methods used for personnel selection in terms of increasing company revenue, predicting job performance as well as reducing assessment bias and adverse impact.
