The 33rd Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology

Anders SjöbergUrvalsbeslutSkriv en kommentar

Nu har jag precis landat på den årliga SIOP konferensen (The 33rd Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology), denna gång i Chicago. Jag har varit ca 12 gånger på konferensen (har inte riktigt koll), och vid flera tillfällen har det varit höjdpunkter i mitt arbetsliv. SIOP har givit mig och mina kollegor bra uppslag till testutveckling. Men ibland har det varit mindre bra, förmodligen för att de områden som jag själv fokuserat på; psykometri, urval, personlighet och intelligens inte alltid varit huvudnummer på konferensen.

När jag nu läser årets program (ladda ned här program2018) tycker jag det är en hel del intressant på årets konferens. Naturligtvis kommer jag skriva på Psychometrics om konferensen under veckan för er läsare (bevaka gärna @psychometricSWE på Twitter). Har själv inget annat bokat än ett Editor möte med SIOP:s Professional Book Series, där vi ska spåna om intressanta författare och ämnen för senare utgivning, förhoppningsvis. 

Detta är några av seminarierna jag ska bevaka under torsdagen. 

39. Special Event: 10:30AM–11:50AM Sheraton 1.

Dunnette Prize Winner Address: Thomas J. Bouchard, Jr. Finding Out How Things Work: Using strong inference strategies recommended by Dunnette (1966), Dr. Bouchard presents a new 4-stratum model of the structure of mental abilities, followed by briefer discussions of work in the domains of personality, occupational interests, and social attitudes. This work is then tied together with a meta-theory (Experience Producing Drive Theory) based on genetics, evolution, and learning. See http://www.siop.org/Conferences/ 18con/Dunnette.aspx for more information.

Is There a g  in Gunslinger?: Cognitive/Personality Predictors of Firearms Proficiency. This study addressed a gap in the research literature looking at the validity of cognitive ability and personality in predicting firearms/shooting range performance, an entirely objective task-based criterion. Using 4 datasets, g and logical reasoning had operational validities of .162–.254. Conscientiousness had a negative operational validity (-.079) and EmotionalStability lacked validity.

“The Why” of Validation: Practitioner’s Guide to Wooing

Those Who Couldn’t Care Less Proposing traditional validation studies with supervisory performance ratings pose challenges. Although they meet legal requirements, they oftenfall short in showcasing the impact of the selection system on “the realwork.” This panel will discuss strategies for communicating “the why” behind programmatic validation research, balancing legal requirements with business outcomes.
