Personnel Selection and Placement

Personnel Selection and Placement As others have pointed out (e.g. Guion & Gibson 1988), personnel selection is one element of a larger family of decisions. Any single personnel decision is ba>:ed on an inference drawn from some body of information. In this review , we are less interested in the technology by which these decisions are made than in the logic and theory supporting the decision process. This logic and theory is represented in the basic and applied research literature. For the most part, we consider literature that appeared in 1991 and 1992, although we also include some material from 1993 and som e published before 1991 if it is relevant and has not been cited in earlier reviews. HISTORICAL TREATMENTS As one might expect following psychology's centennial year, historical treat­ ments of a wide variety of topics have appeared, including personnel selection. Landy (1992a) has provided a biography of Hugo Munsterberg that lays out the philosophical and theoretical roots of the early testing movement. In a subsequent publication (Landy 1993), he covers the testing movement during World War I and interactions among the l eaders in industrial testing at that time.

Abstract

As others have pointed out (e.g. Guion & Gibson 1988), personnel selection is one element of a larger family of decisions. Any single personnel decision is ba>:ed on an inference drawn from some body of information. In this review , we are less interested in the technology by which these decisions are made than in the logic and theory supporting the decision process. This logic and theory is represented in the basic and applied research literature. For the most part, we consider literature that appeared in 1991 and 1992, although we also include some material from 1993 and som e published before 1991 if it is relevant and has not been cited in earlier reviews. HISTORICAL TREATMENTS As one might expect following psychology's centennial year, historical treat­ ments of a wide variety of topics have appeared, including personnel selection. Landy (1992a) has provided a biography of Hugo Munsterberg that lays out the philosophical and theoretical roots of the early testing movement. In a subsequent publication (Landy 1993), he covers the testing movement during World War I and interactions among the l eaders in industrial testing at that time. Katzell & Austin (1992) present a review of the growth
