Are you intrigued by the potential for work simulations to help identify the best people to hire and promote? Do you have a good handle on the best practices around developing, delivering, and scoring employment assessments, but want to take a deeper dive into the fascinating world of simulations? If so, please consider joining Dr. Cheryl Paullin on July 14 at the International Personnel Assessment Council’s (IPAC) 2019 conference in Minneapolis where she will lead a 4-hour workshop focused on “Developing Work Simulations: Building a Rich, Accurate Assessment.”

The workshop will begin by providing an overview of various types of simulations and the competencies or job activities for which they are best suited. Next, Cheryl will describe how to follow a content-oriented strategy to create valid simulations and to develop appropriate scoring methods. The workshop will include a discussion of different response formats and the pros and cons of using video-based versus live simulations. Key activities will be illustrated with small group exercises and participant discussion will be encouraged.

Dr. Cheryl Paullin is a HumRRO Vice President, and her work has focused on the development, validation, and implementation of many different custom assessments for a diverse array of talent management purposes—from pre-employment screening and promotion to employee and leader development—often in high-stakes situations. She has worked with a wide variety of public- and private-sector clients, including Fortune 500 firms and clients at all levels of government. She is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
