Discuss how you would test for reliability and validity

Scenario:

Erica Freeman, president and CEO of LoneStar Landscaping, has recently partnered with Andrew Porter to expand her established, reputable business to include his business specialties: hardscapes, pools, and spas. Erica and Andrew realize that they need to examine combined organizational structure, hire additional staff, and perhaps reassign several existing employees.

Tasks:

Erica and Andrew hire you as an Industrial Organization (I/O) consultant. Design a narrated Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to help them accomplish their goals.

In your presentation, respond to the following:

    • Design instructions for the use of the rating scale.
    • Discuss how you would test for reliability and validity of your selection plan.
    • Justify your recommendations by citing relevant resources.
