excellent post making it a whole different perspective...more like a Py
test than "integrity.

Using the Employment incentory (EI), I have conducted validity studies for
bus drivers (using criteria such as chargeable/non-chargeable accidents,
workers’ comp claims, absenteeism, etc. with excellent results. A similar
study for nursing assistants also produced high validities.
I have also used measures of conscientiousness ( a more accurate
nomenclature than integrity tests) for a relatively wide group of public sector
positions including laborers and fire fighters.
Labelling people as “failing an integrity test” is problematic. Given
conscientiousness’s status as a big 5 personality characteristic – I prefer “
demonstrating higher levels of conscientiousness”.

Subject: [IPAC-List] Use of integrity assessments in public sector

Happy 2014 to all!
I am curious about the group’s thoughts about a question that was recently
posed by a colleague regarding the use of integrity tests in the public
sector. Integrity tests are used fairly broadly in the private sector for
individuals applying for “positions of trust.” However, neither of us were
aware of their usage in the public sector (setting aside the use of
psychological assessments for the selection of public safety officers which uses a
different set of assessments much broader in scope ). Anyone have any
thoughts or anecdata? Thanks-
