Abstract

The author investigates whether the extent to which participants recognize rating dimensions in assessment centers has an effect on performance. Results showed that people who more accurately identify dimensions perform better. Convergent validity of dimension ratings is greater when participants accurately perceive that the same dimension is being evaluated in 2 exercises. In the discussion, the author considers how the ability to adequately perceive rating dimensions (i.e., transparency) may influence criterion validity.
