Future Directions

Chapter

Abstract

The contributors to this book have provided the most comprehensive compilation of personnel selection simulation research and practice to date. In the past 10 years, tremendous advancements have been made in this area, and we are progressing faster than ever before. Future simulations for personnel selection will utilize enhancements in complexity (both in terms of candidate experience and internal design), realism, and engagement. These areas of enhancement will drive us further toward our collective goal of creating assessments in which candidates forget that they are being assessed, and enable us to elicit true measures of the knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics (KSAOs) required for job performance.
