The aim of this unit is to build on the skills developed in Advanced Personnel Assessment, specifically to further develop the skills of test evaluation and to develop an understanding of the major issues involved in personnel selection and assessment. The use of assessment centres for selection and appraisal will also be examined, along with interviewing and counselling skills. Finally, emphasis will be given to the practical application of tests in the workplace, viz, working within a budget and developing the skills of justifying test selection and report writing for non-psychologists.


By the end of this unit candidates should be able to:

  1. Evaluate tests.
  2. Understand the major issues involved in personnel selection and assessment.
  3. Conduct a testing process within a workplace.
  4. Have improved counselling and interviewing skills.
