Employment Assessment Case Study,
During a global career
succession assessment of leadership talent pipeline, a candidate was asked to
complete a personality/behavioral tendency profile. The candidate asked
to speak to the program administrator about the validity of the assessment.
The assessment is based on first responses to several sets of word
values. The instructions were to respond with first instinct to the set
of words listed in several different categories. The candidate stated
that some of the words could have different interpretations based on values,
beliefs, and cultural origin. Therefore, the validity of the assessment
could be biased in terms of results/outcomes. The program administrator removed
the weighting of the assessment (not part of the overall assessment scoring) to
be used for informational and team building purposes only.
Use: the above information to answer the following
in 700 to 900 words:
- Analyze whether the candidate
has a valid discrimination concern about the assessment.
- Determine what EEOC regulations
could potentially be at risk of violation.
- Evaluate how the assessment
could be altered so that it could still be used for the program.
