Abstract

A comparison of the validities of mechanically-derived and consensus-derived assessment center ratings found no significant differences between the two approaches for the prediction of on-the-job performance. No significant differences were found in the predictive validities on any of the dimensions. Adverse impact percentages were almost identical between the two approaches.
