In this White Paper, you may know deeply about Validity and Reliability of the WorkPlace Big Five ProFile (long form).

A White Paper presented from CentACS, powered by Pierce J. Howard, Ph.D., Director of Research on May 18, 2017.

What does it mean to call a test valid? In some ways, it is like calling a person nice: nice could mean any of many things, depending on who is using the word and about whom s/he is talking! Nice is neatly groomed, but also friendly, or usually smiling. Nice could also mean someone who makes good grades, or who is well-rounded. One who is studious, or helpful, or a hard worker, or just conversational, or even just quite. Volunteers are nice. Well, you get the idea.
