Quick Reference

A selection technique typically used for appointments to posts that will involve considerable investment in future career development. For example, many employers recruit graduates onto management training schemes and their methods of selection often include an assessment centre. Although time consuming and costly, assessment centres are deemed to be appropriate because they allow candidates to be assessed over several days using a range of tests and simulation exercises. This produces a more rounded view of the candidates, potentially leading to better-quality selection decisions. Critics argue that assessors rarely use all the dimensions tested in the assessment centre when making their final decisions, and although assessment centres score high on reliability, they often rate poorly in terms of predictive validity.
