We both expanded upon and compared our results to a prior benchmarking study (Spychalski et al. in Personnel Psychol,50:71–90, 1997), and investigated practices regarding job analysis, AC development, dimensions (i.e., job requirements), exercises, assessor characteristics and training, behavior recording, data integration, organizational policy, assessee rights, AC evaluation and AC technology. Data were collected via an online survey completed by individuals from human resource departments of organizations (N = 54) across the U.S; organizations to whom the survey was sent were selected by sampling Fortune 500 organizations based on economic sector. Findings Results indicate that 93% of organizations reported considering the Guidelines for AC development and use.
