Abstract

Measurement technology is used in the research and practice of organizational psychologists, who specialize in work-place personnel selection and performance management. The focus here is on how measurement technology is used in the workplace and on identifying the main constructs of interest and how they are measured and assessed. Results concerning construct and predictive validity and recent psychometric innovations and avenues for future research are discussed. Measurement equivalence, which is especially important for researchers interested in cross-cultural/national comparisons, is also examined.
