Assessment Strategy

Risk Management

Legal review: Confirm it meets objective legal and regulatory standards. Was the assessment purposely designed and developed for business applications? The history of assessment tools range from IQ tests of the 1950’s to clinically oriented psychology instruments used between the 1960’s and 1980’s including psychological inventory tests like the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI). Many came under fire with respect to their legality in application. Basic arguments suggested they were discriminatory and/or violated the civil rights of individuals or protected groups. Successful challenges to the U.S. Supreme Court and monitoring by federal and state EEOC entities have made it clear employment tests must be specific to legitimate employment requirements.
