Assessment of In‐Basket Performance by Quickly‐Scored Methods: Development and Psychometric Evaluation (pages 135-142)

The present research was aimed primarily at establishing and evaluating an In‐Basket exercise and scoring procedures that greatly reduce training and scoring time while retaining adequate reliability and validity. In the first of two studies, an optimal subset of In‐Basket items was identified for scoring. Their reliability and concurrent validity were then re‐evaluated in a second, cross‐validation study. No loss in reliability and little in validity resulted from the scoring‐item reduction. In addition, results emerged that shed light on attainable In‐Basket reliability and criterion‐related validity. Implications for In‐Basket use are noted.
