The Assessment Matrix: A T&E and M/C Qualifying Test for Managers of Data Processing.
Kaiser, Paul D.
This paper describes a process used to assess the technical competency of non-direct line candidates for managerial positions in computer specialties. The Training and Experience (T&E) qualifying test, a multi-method approach combining task-based, computer scorable evaluations of training and experience with multiple-choice batteries, was used as a qualifying screen for determining candidates' knowledge, training, and experience in specific competency areas. An assessment matrix was used to evaluate candidate scores from the multi-methods and identify candidates in need of follow-up. The process was content valid, efficient (the number of candidates across all competencies equals 1200), and acceptable to candidates and subject matter experts. Tables illustrate the matrix and evaluation results. The job experience and training questionnaire and an answer sheet are attached. (Contains 17 tables.) (Author/SLD)
