Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka om det finns någon skillnad i prestation beroende på om rekryteringstestet har en koppling mellan test och arbetsuppgifter och när denna koppling saknas. Ytterligare ett syfte var att undersöka om det finns något samband mellan en persons prestation och dennes uppfattning om testet. För att undersöka detta gjordes en enkätstudie. En enkät konstruerades som bestod av tre delar; den första delen beskrev ett rekryteringsscenario som deltagaren ombads sätta sig in i, den andra delen bestod av ett kognitivt test och den avslutande delen bestod av frågor angående hur rättvist deltagaren uppfattade testet. Resultatet visade att det inte fanns någon skillnad i prestation beroende på vilket scenario man tilldelats. Inte heller kunde vi finna något samband mellan testresultat och upplevelse av rättvisa. Däremot fann vi intressanta könsskillnader i hur rättvist man upplevde testet där männen ansåg att testet var mer rättvist än kvinnorna oavsett vilket scenario de tilldelats. Att vi inte fick någon signifikant skillnad mellan grupperna kan bero på att studien utfördes på studenter, resultatet hade kanske sett annorlunda ut om studien hade utförts i en autentisk rekryteringssituation.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate if there is a difference in test performance depending on weather there is a clear connection between recruitment test and work task and when this connection does not exist. Another purpose was to investigate if there is a correlation between a persons performance and his or her attitudes towards the test. To investigate this a questionnaires was used. The designed questionnaire consisted of three parts; the first part consisted of a description of a hypothetical scenario in which the test persons were asked to put themselves. The second part consisted of a cognitive test and the final part consisted of questions concerning the test persons perceived fairness of the cognitive test. The result showed no difference in performance depending on which scenario the test person were given. There was no correlation between test result and perceived fairness. On the other hand we found interesting gender differences where men perceived the as more fair than women independent of which scenario they were given. An explanation to why there was no significant difference between the groups could be that the participants were students. It is possible that the results would have been different if the study had been performed in an authentic recruitment situation.
