Making It Right: SJT Measurement Issues

Michael McDaniel, Virginia Commonwealth University, Facilitator

2-1 Test–Retest Reliability of SJT Items Used for Credentialing

Assessing reliability of SJTs in high-stakes situations is problematic with reliability inappropriately measured by alpha. We compared SJT test–retest data, r = .84, to internal consistency, α = .45. The SJT correlated significantly with cognitive ability, r = .30, and Agreeableness, r = .24. We discuss the practical implications for use of SJTs in credentialing examinations.

2-2 A Single-Response Situational Judgment Test: Validity and Relationships With Personality

A single-response SJT was developed and tested with museum tour guides. The single-response SJT significantly predicted performance (r = .33) and was significantly related to personality traits intrinsic to the job. Theoretical implications are discussed. These findings further support single-response SJTs as efficient and effective alternatives to multiple-response SJTs.

2-3 Scoring Situational Judgment Tests Using Profile Similarity Metrics

Mathematical analyses are presented that decompose distance-based measures, which are commonly used to score SJTs, into component indices based on correlation, dispersion, and elevation. Comparisons of the validities of distance and correlation-based scores support conclusions that the use of correlation-based scores improves the validity of SJTs that utilize rating scales.

Doing Research That Influences Theory and Practice

Frameworks and evidence-based guidance will be provided for doing research that advances both academic knowledge and practice. The contribution of research to organizational practice is of critical importance in a world where organizations are impacting the quality of life and health of societies. Despite this, much of today’s research fails to contribute to either practice or theory.

25-1 Understanding Workplace Meetings: A Qualitative Taxonomy of Meeting Purposes

This study examined the different purposes of workplace meetings. Using a sample of working adults (N = 491), our categorical analysis of open-ended questions resulted in a 16 category taxonomy of meeting purposes. Further analysis showed that the taxonomy identified meaningful differences across organizational type and employee job level.

25-2 Is There a Big Five of Teamwork? An Empirical Test

Numerous theories of teamwork have been proposed. These theories have been derived from literature reviews; however, few empirical tests have been conducted. This paper tested 3 competing models of teamwork using confirmatory factor analysis. Results supported a 4-factor structure that consists of leadership, situation monitoring, mutual support, and communication.

25-5 Personality and Team Effectiveness in Virtual Teams

Team-level personality traits were examined in teams that varied in their degree of virtualness. Team personality was associated with commitment, satisfaction, and viability in face-to-face and hybrid teams as well as with self- and expert ratings of performance in virtual teams. Degree of virtualness and time moderated some of these relationships.

25-12 Minority Dissenter Biased Information Search and Anticipated Group Tasks

We draw upon the group task circumplex and the multiple-motive heuristic systematic (MMHS) model to examine information search biases for anticipated group tasks. Minority dissenters exhibited greater confirmation bias prior to more conflictual group tasks, highlighting the social context of group activities as fundamental to motivating minority dissenter information search.

25-13 The Importance of Team Processes for Different Team Types

This study explores the importance different team types (intellectual and physical) place on transition and action-oriented process behaviors. Findings suggest intellectual teams value transition processes (i.e., planning and strategizing) more than action processes (i.e., communication and coordination). In addition, intellectual teams value transition processes more than physical teams.

25-14 Leadership Matters: Getting the Process Right in Healthcare Teams

We investigate the effect of team action processes (coordination), interpersonal processes (interpersonal conflict management), and leadership behaviors on team performance using a cross-sectional survey with 80 teams. The results support interpersonal processes as an important antecedent of performance. The effect of lower team processes is counteracted by transformational leadership.

25-25 Transactive Memory Networks in Adaptation to Team-Member Loss

We suggest that team adaptation to critical member loss requires a dense transactive memory network (TMN). Using a simulation, we find support for the role of TMN density in adaptation. Further, when a more critical member is lost, remaining members can no longer engage in successful plan formulation.
