    The First Cut Is The Deepest – The Cutting Edge In Cut Scores  9:00 - 11:30am

    Dennis Doverspike, Ph.D

    In this combined talk and workshop, Dennis Doverspike will start by discussing the philosophy of cut scores, especially why applicants may have a totally different view of cut scores than the organization. This will include looking at the actual impact of cut scores on applicants, and on other stakeholders.  From there, he will move into a discussion of different approaches to cut scores, leading to the main approach – judgmental approaches especially the Angoff Procedure. The group will work through making Angoff ratings. This will lead into a discussion of ways to improve the Angoff procedure as well as other methods for making cut score ratings.

    Dennis Doverspike, Ph.D., ABPP, is a Full Professor of Psychology at the University of Akron, Senior Fellow of the Institute for Life-Span Development and Gerontology, and Director of the Center for Organizational Research. He is certified as a specialist in Industrial-Organizational Psychology and in Organizational and Business Consulting Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP), serves on the Board of the American Board of Organizational and Business Consulting Psychology, and is a licensed psychologist in the State of Ohio. Dr. Doverspike has over forty years of experience working with consulting firms and with public and private sector organizations, including 15 years as Executive Vice President of Barrett & Associates and serving as an associate of Winfred Arthur Jr. Consulting. In addition, he has his own firm, Doverspike Consulting LLC.

    How do we do that? Practical approaches for score Banding and Ranking, and for creating Composite Scores 12:30 - 3:00pm

    Jim Kuthy, Ph.D.

    This presentation will cover how an employer can consider the banding and rank ordering of applicants based on their test scores in a potentially-defensible fashion. It will also cover how employers can appropriately combine scores from various selection devices into a composite score for making employment-related decisions, which is especially critical if the weighted composite of test scores will be used for ranking applicants based on their test scores. Finally, it will provide examples of how a combination of pass/fail and banding/rank ordering approaches have been used by employers to enhance the effectiveness of  their employment-related decisions. 

     Dr. Kuthy is a Principal Consultant with Biddle Consulting Group, Inc. in Folsom, California. He holds a Masters and a Ph.D. degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from the University of Akron, which is consistently ranked as one of the top graduate programs in this field. During the past 20 years, he has conducted job analysis, test development, and validation studies of selection practices for dozens of Fortune 500 companies, many of which were designed to address EEOC and OFCCP inquiries. He has also conducted similar work for public agencies, such as law enforcement, fire services, city attorneys, transit agencies, and public utilities. His findings have consistently been accepted by the EEOC, OFCCP, and the courts as addressing the essential requirements of the federal Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (1978).

    Web scraping and machine learning for employee recruitment and selection: A hands-on introduction

    This hands-on workshop will teach participants the ins and outs of unstructured internet-sourced data curation using a family of techniques from data science generally referred to as “web scraping.” By learning this family of techniques, workshop graduates will have the tools available to algorithmically harvest data from any online source, especially those created by social media, to develop an analyzable dataset. Workshop contents will include discussion of the tradeoffs inherent to various internet data sources and a technique to evaluate potential sources, an overview of the process used to conduct web scraping, presentation of automated data curation tools for those seeking to dabble in web scraping, a brief primer and example of the level and type of computer programming necessary to scrape literally anything on the internet, an interactive discussion of use cases in the selection and assessment context, and a presentation of risks and potential consequences in that context.
