Abstract : Prior research has suggested that brain recordings such as the neuroelectric evoked potential (EP) and neuromagnetic fields may substantially augment personnel assessment procedures. Such procedures include the measurement and prediction of on-job performance. Areas covered in this report include a discussion of individual difference measurement and its history, followed by a description of evidence for the relationship between neuroelectric recordings and aptitude. Emphasis is given to relationships between EP recording and on-job performance assessment that this Center found over the last 12 years. Finally, a discussion follows of new techniques that we and others are examining and developing to improve the sensitivity of brain function measures, using the neuromagnetic evoked field (EF). Relationships between the EF and on-job performance are described.
