Coulton, Gary F.; Feild, Hubert S.
Public Personnel Management, v24 n2 p223-54 Sum 1995

Despite high costs, centers offer the advantages of observation of actual job-related behavior, support in the legal arena, and validity. Video technology and other options have potential for reducing the expense. (SK)
