Abstract:

This research memorandum reviews methods for quantifying the tradeoffs between using proxy i.e., surrogate measures of job performance versus the established benchmark criterion of hands-on performance tests. Such analytical methods must be sensitive to the intended application of the proxy. Two applications that require precise performance information are examined for equivalence of outcomes when proxies are used as opposed to hands-on tests.
