Time: 7:30 am to 9:30 am
Networking starts at 7:30 am, program begins at 8:00 am
Gamification and game-based assessment are being increasingly adopted in organizations, yet little research in I-O psychology is available to understand such assessments. In this talk, I will first explain the difference between games and gamification by walking through the game studies and gameplay human-computer interaction research literatures through an I-O psychology lens. Second, I will provide examples of game-based assessments currently used in the employee selection marketplace. Third, I will describe one of my recent empirical studies exploring reactions, psychometric properties, and adverse impact in one of these, a game-based general cognitive ability assessment. Finally, I will briefly explore the potential of recent transformative advances in predictive modeling coming from the nascent field of data science to improve construct measurement from games beyond what is currently available in either research or practice.
