Joel -

In 2008, IPMA's journal Public Personnel Management published a three-part series that "...examines the development selection testing." Part 1 focused on the history of selection testing from the 19th century to present day. Part 2 looked at the development of methods and standards, specifically validity and utility. Part 3 was a devoted to personality assessment in selection. The series was co-authored by Scroggins, Thomas, and Morris and appeared in volume 37, Issue1; volume 37, issue 2, and volume 38, issue 1. All three should be available for download on the IPMA website.

Can anyone point me to a historical review of employee selection testing, perhaps beginning at the turn of the 20th century?
