Occupational psychologists Cook (Swansea U.) and Cripps (an independent UK consultant) separate the valid and reliable from the questionable in describing psychological tests and other techniques for assessing employees. Based on real world-based research rather than studies with college students, they discuss the why, what, and how of performance appraisal-related assessment. The last chapter treats professional and ethical issues. Chapters include recommendations, case studies, and discussion points. They do not address US unions' concerns over assessments for the "right personality" for a job. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
