  • Our group consist of Laneika Mattress-Musalini, Paula Williams and Kelly CollinsWe decided to do our assessment on “THE BF5 PERSONALITY TEST”
  • The BF5 Personality Test is a product of Central Test located at www.us.centraltest.comIt measures 5 fundamental personality dimensions (extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness to experience)It is based on the internationally recognized BIG 5 FACTOR MODEL of PERSONALITYIt takes approximately 7 minutes to complete and it highlights dominant personality traitsThe test can be used at all levels within an organization
  • The BF5 is intended to be taken by people ages 18 and upIt is mostly used for recruitment and orientationThere are 15 sets of 4 statements ranked 1 to 4It also monitors social desirabilityThe BF5 is available in English, French, Spanish, German and DutchThe objective of the test is to identify an individual’s foremost personality traitsIt’s very inexpensive, costing $15 or 15 credits per test. $1 (USD) is equal to 1 credit
  • The test is accessible online at www.us.centraltest.comThis product is very cost effective, again, costing only $15 per test. Central Test offers a 40% discount to organizations ordering in bulk and Test &amp; results can be personalized with a company logo, brand name and URLFor reliability purposes, regular assessments are performedMeasures of reliability include: behavioral science which measures the test taker’s psychological and physical state; environmental factors; internal consistency reliability; and test-retest reliability
  • The test is also assessed for validityIts validity is assessed to show a link between test performance and job performance3 different types of validity are used: Criterion-related validity, Content-related validity, and Construct-related validityThe test can be used in several different countries making it very adaptableThe format is very simple. It is a questionnaire with 15 sets of 4 statementsThe response for each statement is ranked 1 to 4
  • Our group reconstructed the BF5 Personality test to one that also measures the Big 5 FactorsIt consist of 25 statements with response for each ranked 1 to 5It can be altered to conform to a particular job within our organizationIt is cost effective and accessible (it’s created and administered in-house; it can be taken with pen/paper, online or with assistance for vision/reading impaired usersIt is a very simple format and it is to be used in conjunction with other hiring practices
  • Here you will see the instrument that we constructed
  • Here, the scoring details are listed:A score between 14 and 19 for the extroversion statements may indicate an increased probability of job satisfaction and productivityA score between 8 and 13 for statements pertaining to agreeableness may indicate that one’s compassionate and cooperativeConscientiousness statements should have a score between 17 and 22 to indicate that an applicant is able to work closely with other employees in the same work spaceA score of 20 to 25 may indicate emotional stability and increased productivity for neuroticism andA score of 16 to 23 for openness to experience may indicate intellect, job satisfaction and high productivity
  • To conclude, if Clemson University decided to construct a personality test supplement to be used during hiring, it could lead to employee retention, employee job satisfaction and higher productivityThis method would be cost effective and accessible to its usersIt can be transformed to conform to departmental hiring needs and It should be used in relation to interviewing and competency/skills tests
  • Are there any questions? Thank you for your time!
