I’m working on a Psychology exercise and need support.
As discussed in prior posts, the use of any instrument should be predicated on the results from a job analysis study. That said, a job analysis may only support the use of a few constructs.
This creates a few practical challenges: (1) how do we score the measures? Do we combine scores or do we create a multiple hurdle approach?
If we are using an off-the-shelf measure of personality and are only using two of the big five dimensions, what do we tell the candidates? In the case of the NEO-PI, candidates would need to complete all of the items, but only 2/5ths of the items would be used.
