COMPUTER‐BASED TESTING APPLIED TO SELECTION OF SECRETARIAL APPLICANTS

COMPUTER‐BASED TESTING APPLIED TO SELECTION OF SECRETARIAL APPLICANTS In this paper, we provide a description of the development and pilot test of a computer‐based testing procedure for the selection of secretarial applicants. The procedure requires secretaries to learn and use word processing, data base, and electronic message software to complete eight different job‐related exercises. The procedure is designed to minimize the role of the test administrator, allow for easy transportability to other test sites, provide quick feedback to examinees, be fair to examinees who have used various kinds of computer hardware and software, and to allow for rapid and easy entry of test score data into a centralized computer network. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Personnel Psychology Wiley

Abstract

In this paper, we provide a description of the development and pilot test of a computer‐based testing procedure for the selection of secretarial applicants. The procedure requires secretaries to learn and use word processing, data base, and electronic message software to complete eight different job‐related exercises. The procedure is designed to minimize the role of the test administrator, allow for easy transportability to other test sites, provide quick feedback to examinees, be fair to examinees who have used various kinds of computer hardware and software, and to allow for rapid and easy entry of test score data into a centralized computer network.
