Resource: “Developing a Test Plan” section in Ch. 11 of the Miller et al. text I-O psychology consultants generally use different types of tests. Some measure abstract constructs, such as personality or leadership, while others measure more concrete constructs, such as math skills or software knowledge. While the overall steps in the test-development process are similar, there are differences within the steps depending on the type of test being developed. Imagine you are designing two tests: one measuring an abstract construct—common sense—and one measuring a concrete construct—knowledge of APA format.


Create a specific definition for each construct you are measuring. In your definition, operationalize the construct in terms of observable and measurable behaviors. Consider what you would see people doing to demonstrate each construct. Operationalizing constructs may be challenging. Develop five items to measure the observable and measurable behaviors for each test. Focus on best practices to develop each item. Include a one-paragraph discussion of challenges you experienced during the assignment and the implications of these challenges in test development in organizations.How would you implement your selected test in the workplace? ================================= RES 741 Week 3 Individual Assignment Analysis of Pilot Test Data Worksheet
