  • Based on my 1992 master’s thesis: An examination of several in-basket scoring strategies and their effect on reliability and criterion-related validity.

Overview: The in-basket exercise, a paper-and-pencil measure of administrative ability, is an assessment technique characterized by complex, often subjective scoring procedures that have limited wide-scale applications of this popular instrument. Theoretically, the literature affords no clear classification system and so a framework outlining definitions of and relationships among management games, management simulations, work sample tests, and in-basket exercises was introduced here. Empirically, this research investigated the cross-sample generalizability of  several strategies for in-basket scoring, including a reduced-item scoring approach in which an optimal subset of items was identified on the basis of reliability and criterion-related validity. Three hundred and twenty-one entry-level employees from a large western Canadian utility company were administered the same in-basket exercise previously applied in a different Canadian utility company. Contrary to expectations, a logically-derived scoring key as the method of choice when validity  shrinkage using an empirically-derived scoring key proved substantial. A new cognitive-based measure of in-basket performance developed here also showed promising results. The reduced-item scoring approach resulted in minimal loss of reliability or criterion-related validity, thus allowing substantial reductions in training- and scoring-time.
