“GenAI threatens the validity and fairness of traditional assessments” | Claudia Nuttgens discusses how AMS is rethinking skills-based hiring and the problems with SJTs

Claudia Nuttgens is a TA powerhouse. As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist and Executive Coach with over 20 years of experience –– and as the leader of the highly-regarded Assessment Advisory team at AMS –– Claudia’s perspectives on where we must innovate across our assessment and selection strategies this year are ones that every TA team needs to hear. 

Whether you’re looking for advice on how to redesign your selection process in light of candidate adoption of GenAI or whether you’re curious about where an experienced and innovative psychologist thinks our traditional assessment methods are falling short, you won’t want to miss this podcast episode. 

Join Claudia and Robert Newry for episode seven of the TA Disruptors podcast as they discuss…

🤖​Why GenAI means there’s now a big validity problem within traditional assessment tools –– dive into the data behind why you need to stop using verbal reasoning tests and simple SJTs to maintain a predictive, scalable assessment process 

⏭️​ What comes next –– Practical ideas on how to efficiently and predictively screen candidates at high volume and why going back to first principles to look holistically at the design of the assessment process should be fun 

📚​ Theories on why adverse impact is getting worse in some areas of cognitive ability testing –– Robert and Claudia debate the flaws in the education system which mean that –– especially in Early Careers –– candidates are ill-equipped to complete cognitive ability testing in the way they once were, effectively de-leveling the playing field

📉​ The erosion of skills –– If the education system failing candidates wasn’t enough, is GenAI now also leading to an erosion of candidate skills? How do we differentiate between what a machine can do and what a human can do? And which skills are about to become most important?

🧠​ The challenges that opening up your funnel to improve diversity now presents for TA teams –– as well as the benefits, plus insights into how to improve your assessment and selection to help high-potential neurodiverse candidates thrive

💥​ Finally, why the era of the AI-enabled candidate means we need to stop trying to take power away from hiring managers and why it’s time to show them a bit more empathy
