Game-based and Gamified Assessments: Advances at the Frontier of Psychometrics

International Journal of Selection and Assessment

Matthew Haynes 0 389 Article rating: 4.0

Game-based assessment (GBA) and gamification of assessments have emerged as promising directions for applied measurement. Both merge the science of high-quality psychometric assessment with research from the interdisciplinary field of human-computer interaction and games research.

The gamification of assessment involves the redesign of existing assessments by adding game elements, whereas GBA promises fully formed start-to-finish assessment experiences in which a game is played and won or lost, and the scores produced by that game can be used meaningfully.  Relatively little research is available evaluating gamified assessment or GBA, particularly in applied contexts with rigorous methodology, thus the focus of the present CFP.

Call for Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management cases

Matthew Haynes 0 471 Article rating: 5.0

Call for Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management cases for the 2020 North American Case Research Association (NACRA) annual meeting. The submission deadline is June 15, 2020, and the website for the conference and call for proposals may be found here (http://www.nacra.net/conference/call-for-cases/)

NACRA is an excellent conference for case writers. Case writers whom cases are selected will participate in the conference, receiving tailored feedback through NACRA’s distinctive round-table setting. For new case writers, NACRA offers a “start-up” workshop, where first-time case authors can present 2-page early cases for an in-depth discussion on how to shape their research into a full case and instructor’s manual. Traditionally, conference presenters have aimed to publish their research in the publication of NACRA, the Case Research Journal. In addition, cases published in the Case Research Journal are distributed by Harvard Business Publishing, The Case Center, Study.net, and Wilfrid Laurier University.  While “NACRA” has the words “North American” in its title, know that scholars from around the world presented at the just-concluded 2019 conference, and there were special awards given for cases written in French, Spanish and Chinese.

SPECIAL RESEARCH FORUM CALL FOR PAPERS

JOINING CONVERSATIONS IN THE SOCIETY ON MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATIONS

Matthew Haynes 0 914 Article rating: No rating

When a manuscript is submitted to Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), editors and reviewers frequently ask: Does the study define a new conversation (theory/lens/paradigm) or divert an existing conversation into a meaningfully different area? Conversations about management and organizations are regularly taking place outside the field of management and its journals as well. Those outside of our field and academic halls may conceptualize organizations and management differently, emphasize organizational and managerial characteristics that are relevant to them, and focus on problems that have not received attention in our studies.

The objective of this Special Research Forum (SRF) is to encourage AMJ authors to join conversations on management and organizations that are taking place in societies around the world. Specifically, we would like to publish a collection of outstanding empirical studies that (1) contribute to the solutions of contemporary managerial and organizational problems and (2) introduce topics to AMJ readers that are seen as important outside of our field but are understudied by management scholars. Examples of such topics include the effects of caste systems on employment, discrimination, socioeconomic status and class in organizations, sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, organizational values, labor strikes, artificial intelligence, global health inequities, the movement of workforce across borders, bribery, political influence, private politics, transnational organizations, interconnected economic systems, and the organizational implications of national conflicts, wars, and international trade agreements and sanctions.

Reminder: Submit Abstracts for Strategy Science Special Issue on Culture by 10/1/19

Matthew Haynes 0 699 Article rating: 5.0

Dear Colleagues,

With the kickoff of the new academic year, we wanted to remind you of the call for papers for the upcoming special issue of Strategy Science: Reinvigorating Research on Organizational Culture and its Link to Strategy.

An organization’s culture has long been recognized as a key contributor to its strategic success, as well as to how its members—the people and groups within it—behave. Given the importance of the links between organizational culture, strategy, and firm performance, Strategy Science is hosting a special issue on different facets of this topic. The special issue aims to tackle two core questions: First, how do different conceptions of culture relate to one another in organizational contexts, and second, how can integrating these different conceptions help to advance our understanding of a firm’s strategy and performance?
