Abstract and Keywords

Rapid advancements in computer technology and the explosive growth of the Internet over the past decade have led to a paradigm shift in the way we design and deliver personnel assessments. Measurement practice and theory have now evolved to the point at which test users can build and launch sophisticated assessment programs on a global scale to measure an almost limitless array of attributes. Candidates can be assessed in any language, for any position, with greater efficiency and precision than ever before. Web-based assessment, despite all of its proven and potential benefits, is not without its challenges. In fact, there are a host of measurement and operational issues that need to be considered and addressed to ensure that critical assessment decisions can be made with efficiency, accuracy, and integrity. The purpose of this chapter is to review the current and projected state of web-based assessment and discuss its critical role in talent selection and development.

Keywords: web-based assessment, unproctored internet testing, internet-based testing, equivalence, standardization, measurement integrity, cheating deterrence
