Self Assessments vs. Objective Tests: A Question of Incremental Validities.
Blanchard, P. Nick; And Others
An investigation of the relative validity of self-assessments versus standardized tests indicated that both self-assessments and objectively tested abilities were significantly related to supervisory ratings of overall job performance. While these correlations were not significantly different, further analysis revealed that objectively tested abilities accounted for a significant increment in prediction of overall job performance, beyond that accounted for by self-assessments. Self-assessments, however, accounted for almost no additional variance in the criterion beyond that accounted for by tested abilities. (Author)
