Are PI Assessments Valid?

What Exactly Is Validity?

Validity refers to evidence supporting interpretations and use cases for an assessment. The PI Science Team engages in continuous improvement for their validation. Throughout the body of their validity research, they have found that the PI Behavioral Assessment is linked to multiple work outcomes, which has helped them to establish criterion-related validity. Further, they have researched how the BA is linked to theoretically related (and unrelated) dimensions, allowing them to establish convergent (and discriminant) validity.
