Division of Occupational Psychology Annual Conference

Developing new assessment centre standards for the British Psychological Society

Presenting at the Division of Occupational Psychology Annual Conference 2014

Steve is working with the BPS to produce an independent set of standards for the design and running of assessment centres. The new guidelines point to the areas that need to be made explicit and agreed between a client and their assessment centre provider and who should have responsibility for each area.

The working group, comprising users, providers and academics, are currently assimilating feedback on an initial draft of the standards and a series of research questionnaires which will inform the final draft - available later this year for wider consultation.

Steve presented an assessment Centre case study as part of a symposium on assessment centre practice at the Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) Annual Conference held on the 8-10 January 2014. 

During this session, Steve demonstrated why a rigorous and structured approach to design is not sufficient to produce an Assessment Centre (AC) that is fit for purpose. Steve used the British Psychological Society (BPS) draft AC standards to describe the design and delivery of a highly regarded AC. Delegates' attention was drawn to significant flaws in the AC that the new standards could help prevent in future designs.
