Abstract  Situational judgment tests are popular personnel selection tests in which the participants are presented the typical work-related situations and the probable behavioral responses, and are required to select or evaluate them according to the instructions. With the development of the theory and practices of SJTs, researchers are paying more attention to its validity, including construct validity, criterion-related validity, incremental validity, and impacts of instruction types, situational fidelity, scoring and other factors on its validity. On this premise, the future practices of situational judgment tests may include: (1) developing tests that are fit for specific constructs; (2) adopting appropriate instructions according to specific constructs; (3) applying the findings of the impacts of faking and training on validity to practices.
Keywords situational judgment test      construct validity      criterion-related validity      incremental validity
