Validity Generalization (Hogan Assessments)

The Validity Generalization process is a method of establishing a benchmark by relying upon benchmarks from other studies.

The philosophy of this approach is that there are components of jobs that could be found in other jobs within other organizations. Using previous criterion related validity evidence from the Hogan Archive it could be aimed at any type of job and specific requirements.

Steps of the project:

  • Analyze the target job based on expert input, job documents, and Job Evaluation Tool (JET) from Hogan Assessment
  • Use the Hogan Archive to identify the tests scales predictive of the characteristics and competencies considered critical to successful performance
  • Establish job-specific candidate selection guidelines (benchmarks and scales).

Most suitable for organizations:

  • Growing companies of all kinds
  • Medium size companies that want to improve the selection process
  • Organizations that innovate a lot and where jobs and job requirements change fast.


  • A customized selection solution for specific needs of an organizations and more relevant than an off-the-shelf solution
  • Easy to implement in terms of costs and resources
  • Improving the efficiency of the selection process.

Eu sunt un psiholog organizational, angajat ca Recruitment & Development Manager in departamentul CP al Siemens Romania si, in ceea ce priveste utilizarea evaluarilor Hogan, pot spune ca am folosit Hogan Assessment Systems din 2008, si anume HPI, HDS, MVPI si integrat sistemul Hogan, ca parte a evaluarii noastre standard inainte de promovare pentru pozitii de top management si specialisti

Hogan Assessments helped me discover extraordinary things and extremely useful things when it comes to people interaction. It’s an instrument which has the capacity to offer valuable information on people, so as to create a concrete development plan for them. Also, it makes me very happy that I can easily “read” Hogan raports for external candidates, thus making better decisions
