Abstract

Personnel selection is a process culminating in a decision to hire one or more applicants for employment and not to hire others. The decision to hire is one of a family of personnel decisions, including promotions and terminations, that should not be made without foundation. This review is concerned with 0066-4308/88/0201-0349$02.00 GUION & GIBSON the literature speaking to the foundations of such decisions and their evalua­ tion. Most of the span of this review covers publications of 1985 and 1986, with incursions on either side of those years. Two major documents have appeared: new Standards f Educational and or Psychological Testing (American Educational Research Association [AERA] 1985), the fourth in a series, and the third edition of Principles f Validation or and Use of Personnel Selection Techniques, (Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology [SlOP] 1987). A comprehensive text on personnel selection has appeared, a revision of Staffing Organizations, now by Schneid­ er & Schmitt (1986). Changes in these publications reflect changes in professional thought dur­ ing the preceding decade. Nowhere are these changes greater than in the treatment of validity and the general evaluation of tests and selection pro­ cedures.
