The present research compares the operation of situational judgement and biodata measures between Chinese and U.S. respondents. We describe the development and past research on both measures, followed by hypothesized differences across the two groups of respondents. We base hypotheses on the nature of the Chinese and U.S. educational systems and cultural value differences from the GLOBE studies (House, Hanges, Javidan, Dorfman, & Gupta, 2004). Results indicate some evidence of mean differences across groups at the scale level but little effect of national origin when examining the test battery as a whole. We conclude with recommendations concerning the use of situational judgment and biodata measures in situations in which the evaluated individuals come from different cultural contexts.
