Essentials of Personnel Assessment and Selection discusses the essentials that managers and other well-educated people should know about the assessment processes so widely used in contemporary society--and so widely not understood. It emphasizes that good prediction requires well-formed hypotheses about personal characteristics that may be related to valued behavior at work and the need for developing a theory of the attribute one hypothesizes as a predictor--a thought process too often missing from work on selection procedures. In addition, it explores such topics as team-member selection, situational judgment tests, non-traditional tests, individual assessment, and testing for diversity. The goal is to produce an accessible guide to assessment that covers basic and advanced concepts in a straight-forward, readable style. It provides a review of the most relevant statistical concepts and modern selection practices that will equip the reader with the tools needed to be competent consumers of assessment procedures and practices, and to be well-informed about the kinds of questions to be answered in evaluating them.

This book will appeal to instructors of advanced undergraduate and master's level courses on personnel selection and assessment. If supplemented by other readings on selected topics, it would be useful in doctoral seminars. Also, students interested in becoming users of research-based assessment and selection information and techniques will find it useful.

"Guion and Highhouse treat all topics with the respect they deserve, and as a result they provide students with a clear, concise and accurate treatment of many important concepts...I believe that both students and veterans of employment research and selection will find it a highly valuable resource."
-University of North Carolina

"Essentials of Personnel Assessment and Selection by Guion and Highhouse provides a comprehensive treatment of cutting-edge topics involved in the area of assessment and selection with an emphasis on the most important measurement issues. Logically organized and with great depth of scholarship, it should be a 'must read' for all graduate students in I/O psychology, as well as for more experienced I/O researchers. Even the most applied practitioner will surely benefit from the interpretation of the most recent research in the area."
-Neil Christiansen
Central Michigan University

"This book is both thorough and well-organized, with relevant and interesting examples as well as up-to-date references. The book is well balanced in containing the rich theoretical and practical advice based on Guion's wealth of experience, while also being the 'right' size for most instructors, practitioners, and students."
-Fred Oswald
