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.

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.
