What are active procrastinators like? Past research examining the Big Five personality predictors of active procrastination (AP) has found Extraversion and Emotional Stability to be predictive of such a behavioral characteristic. Yet, previous studies suffered from the fact that data were solely collected from undergraduates in academic settings us...

Considering creativity as a novel-and-useful performance outcome, this study explored the predictive effects of cognitive abilities (i.e., divergent thinking, intellectual aptitude as indicated by SAT scores) and Big Five personality traits on creativity and its two aspects (i.e., novelty and usefulness) in addition to the intercorrelations between...

The present paper reports on the preliminary validation of a Chinese version of Steel’s Irrational Procrastination Scale (IPS). To this end, the nine items of the IPS were translated into Chinese and data were collected from a sample of 2,361 mainland Chinese college students. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to examine the dimensional s...
Article
Lievens and Motowidlo (2016) proposed to reconceptualize situational judgment tests (SJTs) as a category of measures assessing general knowledge about the utility of exhibiting workplace behaviors that represent either high or low levels of a targeted personality trait. However, the development of such contextual knowledge is unclear and less well...

Applying the graded response model within the item response theory framework, the present study analyzes the psychometric properties of Karwowski’s creative self-efficacy (CSE) scale. With an ethnically diverse sample of US college students, the results suggested that the six items of the CSE scale were well fitted to a latent unidimensional struct...
Article
Full-text available
As a multifaceted construct reflecting one’s self-esteem, generalized self-efficacy, locus of control, and emotional stability, core self-evaluations (CSE) has become popular to measure in applied psychology research, especially given its conceptual importance and empirical usefulness for understanding the dispositional effects on employee attitude...
Article
Silvia and colleagues (2008, 2009) proposed and evaluated alternative subjective scoring approaches (i.e., Top 2 and Snapshot) to assessing creativity on divergent thinking (DT) tasks, highlighting the advantages and compromises of using simpler scoring methods (vs. the more effortful and complex Average scoring system) when including DT as an anci...

The present study analyses the psychometric properties of the irrational procrastination scale (IPS; Steel, 2002, 2010) in a sample of United States college students using the Rasch modeling approach. Results showed that the IPS items had a high level of reliability, good content validity, structural validity, and substantive validity, and no diffe...
Article
Although not unequivocal, a general viewpoint based on earlier research is that the ability-speed relationship in reasoning tasks is likely to be zero or slightly positive (Carroll, 1993; Kyllonen, 1985). Yet, more recent studies (Goldhammer & Klein Entink, 2011; Scherer, Greiff, & Hautamäki, 2015; Shaw, Oswald, Elizondo, & Wadlington, 2014) adopti...

In this paper, we report on the validation of the Chinese HEIghten® Critical Thinking assessment with a nationally representative sample of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science students from 35 institutions in China. Key findings suggest that there was a test...
Chapter

This chapter is based on the proposition that three major forces, taken together, have fundamentally changed the nature of work in the 21st century. These three forces are technology, the rise of the service economy, and globalization, and they drive organizations to seek employees who possess what are called 21st century skills. After reviewing th...

Organizations have a keen concern for avoiding adverse impact in personnel decision making. The most obvious reasons are typically financial and reputational in nature (e.g., avoiding class action lawsuits), but equally important may be ethical and diversity reasons tied to the organizational mission (e.g., seeking to hire a range of diversity as r...

This article analyzes data from U.S. Navy sailors (N = 8,956), with the central measure being the Navy Computer Adaptive Personality Scales (NCAPS). Analyses and results from this article extend and qualify those from previous research efforts by examining the properties of the NCAPS and its adaptive structure in more detail. Specifically, this art...
