The pre-dominant influence on the quality of the assessment itself and its outcome lies in the confidence and the experience of the interviewer who utilises the assessment result as an “access” to understanding the person in assessment. Also, the quality of the test itself – in technical terms of reliability, validity, etc. – highly determines the assessment’s utility value.
The importance of the accuracy of a psychological test is widely recognised and easily referred to, whereas its potential reach when in actual use (i.e. interpretation, feedback) with regard to
- Decisions on selection/appointment/employment and
- Development activities for potential and talent management
is often neglected. This leads to stereotype and generic results and an accordingly limited impact of the assessment outcome.
