Question Description

During a global career succession assessment of leadership talent pipeline, a candidate was asked to complete a personality/behavioral tendency profile. The candidate asked to speak to the program administrator about the validity of the assessment. The assessment is based on first responses to several sets of word values. The instructions were to respond with first instinct to the set of words listed in several different categories. The candidate stated that some of the words could have different interpretations based on values, beliefs, and cultural origin. Therefore, the validity of the assessment could be biased in terms of results/outcomes. The program administrator removed the weighting of the assessment (not part of the overall assessment scoring) to be used for informational and team building purposes only.

Use the above information to answer the following in 700 to 1,050 words:

  • Analyze whether the candidate has a valid discrimination concern about the assessment.
  • Determine what EEOC laws could potentially be at risk of violation.
  • Evaluate how the assessment could be altered so that it could still be used for the program.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines. All college level assignments require three to five references. Only references cited within the body of the assignment can be included in the references. As in all assignments, please write in third person.

measure which brand comes first in a consumer’s mind once they hear or see certain words.
The technique involves the use of open-ended questions about brands that come first to mind
in a particular category (Cherian, Dasgupta, & Doreswamy, 2007). The assessment is,
therefore, not valid since the candidate has to respond with the first instinct to the set of
words listed.
The answers given by the candidates will be unfairly prejudiced. Likewise, candidates
will provide solutions that are tied towards the attainment of particular results. Ultimately, the
results of the assessment will be biased. I...
