This full-day workshop will provide beginner-to-intermediate-level practitioners with information about how to incorporate innovative solutions into their current assessment programs and validation practices. The overall objective is to help participants become familiar with novel and modern approaches for assessing candidates with an emphasis on structured interviews and cognitive ability tests and approaches for validating these assessments in a way that meets legal and professional requirements while being efficient and cost effective. Participants will take part in small group exercises and discussions that will help them apply the knowledge and skills discussed.


Agenda:

Registration

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
The morning session will focus on opportunities for innovating in the creation and delivery of assessments commonly used in the public and private sections with a particular focus on structured interviews and cognitive ability tests. Novel and modern approaches and principles for creating structured interviews and cognitive ability tests will be presented. Participants will have “hands-on” experience in small groups where they will identify opportunities to apply these approaches and principles to their current assessment programs and practice applying them, including writing enhanced structured interview items.

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Lunch

1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
The afternoon session will focus on opportunities for innovating in the validation of assessment for use in personnel decisions. Validation methods that can meet legal and professional requirements in a more cost effective and efficient way will be presented. Lessons learned from two municipal government case studies where these approaches were applied will be shared. Participants will apply these concepts in small groups where they will develop validation plans for jobs in their organizations.

4:00 PM – 4:30 PM

The day’s presentation will conclude with a wrap-up discussion and brief Q&A session.
