The Latest Research on Simulations and Multimedia SJTs

Simulations and multimedia situational judgment tests (SJTs) are quickly becoming the “assessment method of choice” for a wide range of occupations, but the literature in this area is not as ubiquitous. Leading-edge research on incremental validity, applicant reactions, user acceptability, and adverse impact will be revealed.

Measuring Implicit Processes in Organizational Research

I-O researchers have traditionally focused on explicit manifestations of employee attitudes, behavior, and personality. This session, however, reviews several indirect approaches to examining implicit processes. These approaches include word fragment tasks, the implicit association test, work narratives, and priming manipulations.

44-28 Group- and Individual-Level Characteristics in Predicting Survey Response Time

Previous research on attitudes predicting survey response behavior has been mixed. Emphasis has been on predicting group-level behaviors, such as response rates or differences between respondents and nonrespondents. This study used multilevel modeling to explore how firm leadership climate impacts the individual-level relationship between employee attitudes and response time.

63-25 Self-Other Agreement in Multisource Feedback and Perceived Leader Effectiveness

We hypothesized that the relationship between self-other agreement and leader effectiveness would depend on the source of the comparison (supervisor, peer, direct report) and behavior rated. Data from 732 managers indicated that self-other agreement did not predict leader effectiveness. Unique relationships were revealed, depending on the behavior examined.

66-9 Age and Environmental Sustainability: A Meta-Analysis

Much research has shown that older and younger individuals hold different environmental attitudes and perform different kinds and amounts of environmental behaviors. The strength and direction of these relationships has been inconsistent across studies, however. If organizations seek to encourage their employees to be more environmentally responsible, understanding how the age composition of their workforce will affect their efforts will be imperative. Based on the different attitudes and behaviors different age groups hold and perform, organizations can adapt their environmental interventions according to the age distribution of their employees.

Investigations into the overlap between self-reported and other-rated criterion information have previously been conducted in the domains of job performance and counterproductivity, among others. This poster presents the first study of self-other convergence for criterion measures of environmental sustainability at work. Participants were 278 employees of a mid-sized consumer goods company and their supervisors across several locations in the U.S. Employees provided self-reports on a scale of environmental reputation and a separate checklist of pro-environmental behaviors engaged in at work. Supervisors rated employees on the same scales.

66-16 To Fly or Not to Fly: Motivational Barriers to Sustainable Corporate Travel

Previous research has indicated 2 interesting results which, when juxtaposed, indicate the need for further investigation. First, flying is a behavior that people underestimate in terms of its environmental impact (Manning, et al., 2008). Second, of a wide set of sustainability-related behaviors, flying is clearly one that people have not attempted to reduce either for work or private purposes (Amel, et al., 2009). Until aviation technology reduces reliance on fossil fuel and significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions, organizational processes and behavior change will be a key factor in reducing a company’s environmental footprint.

“I” Meets “O”: Assessment-Driven Leadership Development and Talent Management

In this session, 5 organizations will discuss the intersection of the “I” and “O” sides of I-O psychology, especially as it relates to using empirical evidence such as psychometric assessments (traditionally seen as more “I”) to inform more macro-organizational decisions like leadership development and talent management (more “O”).

82-1 Multisource Ratings and Political Skill: An Evaluation of Measurement Equivalence

This study examines political skill from multiple rating sources. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to examine measurement equivalence between rating sources. Results indicate measurement equivalence for self-supervisor comparisons but not for self-peer and peer-supervisor comparisons. In addition results indicated some differences between self- and supervisor ratings of political skill.

82-5 Triple-Dissociation of Two Implicit and One Explicit Aggressiveness Measures

A triple dissociation of aggressive personality processes was found for 2 implicit measures, the CRT and the IAT, and 1 explicit measure, the NEO. They were uncorrelated and predicted different behaviors. Incentive conditions moderated explicit but not implicit predictions. This suggests multiple nonconscious processes involved in personality.

Neuroticism has traditionally exhibited low correlations with job performance. However, it is possible that more promising correlations between Neuroticism and performance may be revealed if Neuroticism is studied at an increased level of specificity. Thus, multiple meta-analyses of correlations of facet-level Neuroticism and job performance were conducted.

82-22 Developing a Taxonomy of Developmental Feedback From Personality Assessments

Nearly all I-O personality research focuses on selection, with little research attention devoted to the developmental applications of personality measures. In a critical incidents study, we found that personality feedback given to individuals low on Conscientiousness or Agreeableness consists of purely descriptive (rather than prescriptive) statements about specific behavioral tendencies.

This study derived JCV models predicting DOT strength from O*NET dimensions; although Rs in the .80s were achieved, errors of prediction were too large to justify its applied use.

89-14 Multisource Reference Feedback and Candidate Motivation Can Identify Quality Nurses

Structured, multisource reference feedback and candidate motivation as selection components for nursing candidates were investigated. Using 448 newly hired nurses, we found multisource reference feedback on candidate performance at previous jobs, and an objective measure of candidate motivation to complete the selection process predicted subsequent supervisory ratings and turnover.

The linearity of grade relationships with subsequent performance was examined with data from 63,241 students across 49 colleges. Although the relationship was generally monotonic, using the LOESS technique meaningful relationships beyond strict linearity was shown. Predictive strength declines after a 4.0, the most frequently occurring GPA.

Discrimination against pregnant applicants may stem from absenteeism concerns. But are applicants who need an equivalent amount of time off rated similarly? All applicants requesting time off, regardless of reason, received less favorable ratings than the applicant not requesting leave. Absenteeism was a primary concern, not the visual pregnancy stigma.
