I would like to express my gratitude to our course instructor
Ms. NELUM; who gave me this opportunity to fulfill this
work. She gave me moral support and guided in different
matters regarding the topic. She had been very kind and
patient while suggesting me the outlines of this assignment.
She just did not make our concepts clear but gave us vivid
direction and east path to compile this work. We hope
that she will continue to guide me in this way in future.

STANDARD OF SUCCESS:

STEP 2: CHOOSE THE TEST:
We like to choose 4 tests and combine them into a test battery.
“OCCUPATUINAL PERSONALITY QUESTIONNAIRER”
The OPQ32 is used to check the candidate's consistency but predominantly to
understand his motives and character. What are the candidates' preferences,
what are his strengths and weaknesses?
The test comprises over 100 questions that examine 32 different qualities. It is
highly complex and is administered on a computer. The candidate is presented
with a block of four statements and must choose which of the statements most
describes him and which of the four statements best describes him and which of
the statements least describes him.
“CLERICAL SKILLS TEST”
Clerical testing measures the prospective employee's skill at job-relevant tasks for
the lecturer we need to know their skills are:
Writing skills, Filing skills, Analyzing skills, Checking skills, typing skills.
Communicating skills interpersonal skills.
“16 PERSONALITY FACTORS”
The sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire is an estimated and commonly used
personality test. The 16PF is commonly used as a candidate assessment tool in
recruitment selection processes. It is meant to expose traits which the applicant
might not even be aware of through the use of a long series of well devised
questions, sometimes appearing more than once but with different wordings.
The test includes around 200 questions that are built in the same format .The
examinee is asked to choose either the True or False answer choices in response
to questions that track his behavior patterns.
The Demonstration Teaching (DT) domain is a full-time, supervised.
Demonstration Teaching prepares you to tackle the challenges of your own
classroom effectively and with confidence. It’s an ideal venue in which to integrate
the academic knowledge and teaching skills developed to that point in your
STEP 3: ADMINISTER THE TEST:
When we hire a lecturer in our computer science department we would use a
predictive validation technique because I think it is more suitable as compare to
concurrent validation technique to hire a new lecturer. We administer the test of
lecturer before we hire her. Then we hire the lecturer using only existing selection
techniques. After she would have been on the job for some time, we measure her
performance and communication skill, her ability to convey the message properly
to students, her interaction skill to the students and how she present herself in front
of students and then compare these skills and performance to their earlier test
STEP 4: RELATE YOUR TEST SCORES AND CRITERIA:
After administering the test, we would relate her score on the test and her job
performance as a lecturer using correlation analysis which shows the degree of
statistical relationship. We would determine that how much her performance
meets the test score, if she get 95% or above our criteria would be successful. In
this step we would determine that either our criteria would be successful on not.
STEP 5: CROSS VALIDATE AND REVALIDATE:
The final step of validation process is to review the system validation periodically.
The system should be reviewed periodically to provide additional assurance of
validation. Before putting the test into use we again check it by cross validate
means by again performing the previous indicated steps 3 and 4 with new
lecturer. We would also revalidate the test process periodically. To demonstrate
content validity we do a careful analysis of lecturer that identifies the required
work behavior of the lecturer. Then combine the sample of these behaviors into
test. We would also maintain documentation outlining the details of how the
review is to be done and what the review should cover. The end result of a review
would be a summary of the review and a recommendation as to what to do next.
