This study was an analysis of applicant scores from an assessment center and a structured face-to-face interview conducted by a Los Angeles County municipality in the summers of2011 and 2012. The data set from prescreened applicants applying for a part-time recreation leader position offered a unique opportunity to assess score consistency between the two employment selection methods. Statistical tests found a statistically significant difference in mean scores between assessment centers and structured face-to-face interviews.
The study also examined whether there were measurable differences in applicant ratings based upon prior recreation work experience, level of education, and sex. Prior recreation work experience, level of education, and sex did not influence applicant scores in either employee selection methods.
The data provides a comparison of two employee selection methods. Future research is recommended for employee performance through employee selection, and affects of assessor ratings based upon job title and rater training.
