The webcam test as a predictor of professional behavior

The webcam test as a predictor of professional behavior

Gedrag & Organisatie, volume 24, September 2011, nr 3, pp. 257-285.The webcam test is a new video assessment designed to measure social competencies. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the criterion-related validity of the webcam test and its incremental validity over and above a cognitive ability test, a personality questionnaire and a video-based situational judgment test. The sample consisted of 106 psychology students. In line with our expectations, the webcam test showed a significant correlation with the criterion professional behavior, a questionnaire about students’ motivation, chairmanship and preparation. Furthermore, the webcam test showed incremental validity over and above the other selection tests. Participants perceived the webcamtest as more face valid than the cognitive ability test and the personality questionnaire. However, the video-based situational judgment test was perceived as more face valid than the webcamtest. Limitations of this study and suggestions for further study are discussed.
