Careful implementation of a test or assessment procedure that is used for selection is critical to its success and sustainability. Poor implementation can threaten the validity of a carefully developed test and weaken its value to the staffing process. This chapter considers three broad categories of implementation issues: administration, scoring, and the use of test results, and discusses the interactions among implementation decisions, decisions about choices of tests, organizational goals for selection procedures, and staffing environments.

Keywords: test administration; test policies and procedures
