Blurb/Shorttext:
Through the process of selection the measurement and prediction of behaviour has become an important activity in the field of psychology, especially in the workplace. A dynamic selection process can assist the organisation in identifying individuals who best suit it’s needs. Psychometric testing is the most common procedure in the prediction of human behaviour during selection. Seeing that not all instruments are valid and reliable, much controversy still exists on the use of such instruments in South Africa. Only by introducing instruments that apply to these criteria will psychometrics have a future in labour practices. The purpose of this study was to assess the construct validity of the First View™, an instrument originating in the United States, for selection purposes in South Africa. By incorporating personality and cognitive ability into one instrument, First View™, as a psychometric instrument, can be used in selection to determine job performance. The cognitive scale is based on Guilford’s Structure of Intellect and the personal scale on the Big Five Personality factors.
