Students will be exposed to contemporary and advanced techniques for maximizing the psychometric quality of measurement instruments commonly used by I-O psychology practitioners. Focus will be on theoretical and applied research issues related to three common theories of psychometrics: classical test theory, generalizability theory, and item response theory. The theories and techniques will be examined based on I-O psychology topics of interest to students, such as leadership, individual differences, selection, and teamwork. Competency A: Explain the traditional psychometric procedures I-O psychology practitioners use to evaluate the scores generated by tests, the reliability of test scores, and the validity of the inferences drawn from test scores. Competency B: Use contemporary and advanced techniques to maximize the psychometric quality of a test. Competency C: Apply best practices to eliminate response and test bias to enhance the psychometric quality of tests.
