Previous chapters in the Annual Review o Psychology on this subject have been f titled "Personnel Selection," with occasional inclusion of the terms "ClassificaÂ tion and Placement . " We have adopted a new title for several reasons , mainly because the field encompasses more than selection, classification, and placeÂ ment . Personnel selection has evolved into a decision theoretic discipline focusing on assessment, evaluation, judgment, prediction, forecasting, utility, and practicality. Within this framework, and during the 1 98 1-82 years covered by this review, the field has been driven by statistical and methodological approaches such as meta analyses; statistical techniques for clustering and PERSONNEL DECISIONS distinguishing jobs; policy capturing of decisions and assessments; applications of item response theory for test development and job evaluation; and estimaÂ tions of utility of selection systems and performance. The title change also was dictated by the literature . While previous reviewers in this series (e. g . Owens & Jewell 1969 , Bray & Moses 1 972) have recognized the potential value of an integrative classification/placement system , there is very little research in this area within an employment setting. Personnel/human resource issues are parts of an open system. Of necessity
