Problems and Pitfalls When Conducting Meta-Analysis in I-O Psychology

Meta-analysis and validity generalization are important methodological tools which have greatly aided research in I-O psychology. However, many difficulties are encountered when conducting meta-analyses and poor decisions made at any stage of the process may lead to inaccurate results. The purpose of this symposium is to highlight potential problems associated with the use of meta-analysis and to provide improvements for future use.

Job Analysis for Competencies Versus KSAOs: Expanding Worker Requirements to Meet Emerging Business Trends

Recent business trends such as the movement toward teams and the use of competency modeling have provided important challenges to traditional job analytic methods. Responses of I-O psychologists to these trends have not surfaced widely in published research, and some important opportunities may be missed as a result. This panel will discuss these challenges and opportunities.

Building Cohesive and Diverse Groups in Organizations

Research on cohesion and diversity leads to conflicting predictions for group performance. Both cohesion and diversity can improve performance on a cooperative task, but diversity can inhibit cohesion, reducing the positive effects. This symposium presents new theoretical and empirical work relevant to fostering cohesion in diverse work groups.

Applicant Faking With Non-Cognitive Tests: Problems and Solutions

A debate is rapidly emerging concerning applicant faking on non-cognitive tests. The dominant view argues that faking does not harm the utility of non-cognitive tests. The opposing view asserts that faking causes substantial harm to the utility and validity of non-cognitive tests. This symposium brings new data and paradigms to the debate.

Spirituality at Work: The Emerging Focus of Organizational Development

Spirituality in the work place has emerged as a strong focus among organizational development practitioners. Spirituality typically is defined as individual awareness, growth and mastery, in addition to group alignment and energy toward a common vision. Practitioners and the limited research base suggest this emphasis increases organizational performance.

Five Generations of I-O Psychologists Speak Out

Two sets of five generations of I-O Psychologists will be asked to comment on changes in the field that they have observed during their careers, lessons to be learned from their relationship with their mentors, and principles they have practiced when acting as a mentor. They will illustrate these points using personal anecdotes based on their experiences as mentor and mentee.

Biodata in Selection: An Investigation of Constructs and Keying Methods

While empirical biodata keying methods optimize situation-specific validity, rational construct-oriented methods enhance generalizability and promote understanding of underlying constructs. Major international research examines validity and generalizability of alternative keying strategies, cognitive and non-cognitive constructs of biodata items, and construct-oriented biodata measuring the capacity to cope with change.

Cross-Cultural Research and the Internet: Theoretical,

Methodological, and Practical Issues

The Internet’s tremendous growth creates new avenues for cross-cultural research. The Internet may link collaborating researchers across cultures; it may facilitate cross-cultural research (e.g., on inter-cultural teamwork and problem-solving); it may be part of the research question (e.g., explorations of inter-cultural electronic communication); or it may be the data collection tool. This roundtable considers all these purposes.
