Write a proposal for an organization\’s leadership to screen candidates for a specific job position, according to the following scenario:
Company \”T\” is a large global organization consisting of 5,000 employees in multiple locations worldwide. Assume you are responsible for creating a battery of tests to use in selection to hire a person for training and development. Some of the skills you want the candidate to have include critical thinking, active listening skills, good time management, problem solving, instruction skills, and cross-cultural knowledge.
For this training and development job position, select three standardized tests that would be useful in screening job candidates. Describe each test and include the psychometric data. Identify the job characteristic or skill that you think the test would support (if a validity study were conducted). Develop a structured interview that could be used along with the battery of tests to appropriately assess the candidates.
Use the Mental Measurements Yearbook database, the Health and Psychosocial Instruments database, or the PsycTESTS database (linked in the Resources) to research tests to use for selection screening. Be sure to write your proposal in a professional manner, keeping in mind your audience.
