A person perception explanation for validation evidence from assessment centers
Consonant with recent person perception accuracy findings, recent longitudinal results from assessment center evaluations suggest that assessors may be accurate in understanding how emotional and motivational tendencies predict target behaviors in work contexts. The features of assessment center exercises and the characteristics of assessors which may explain these findings are discussed and suggestions for future research and practice provided. Contrary to some current arguments, it is suggested that certain types of trait-based dimensions may be essential to effective assessment center practice.
