Alternate Assignment – Week Four Meet Session

From a human resource management perspective, terms like validity and reliability are commonly used particularly in the hiring and employee selection methods applied by firms. According to Kaplan & Saccuzzo (2001), validity is the agreement between the measure of a test score used in selecting employees during the hiring process and the quality it is supposed to measure. In other words, it weighs the distinction between the intended measure of the test and the actual measure derived from that test. On the other hand, reliability is the actual measure of how much the selection panel can trust the results test they intend to use in the hiring and selection processes (Kaplan & Saccuzzo, 2001).


Validity and reliability are very vital aspects of the hiring process (Armstrong & Taylor, 2014). Although a test may have a high level of reliability, it could still fail to meet the required threshold if it has a low level of validity. While high validity in the test would mean that the test indicates rather clearly what the potential employee knows about the job, a low level of reliability discredits the trust in those results (Need, 2006).

As HR manager, I would design the tests with the aim of having both high validity and reliability in the tests utilized during hiring. Regarding validity, I would ensure that the design of the test is sufficient and that it serves the intended purpose. Additionally, I would ensure that the test has the face, content and construct validity attributes specific to the requirements of the firm. About reliability, I would ensure that there is a fresh test for every round of hiring and that each test is divided into specific categories. The categories will be specifically testing how much the potential employees know about the specific issues related to the job at hand. The ramifications of low reliability or validity in a test are that the firm may end up hiring the wrong candidate for the job.
