Article abstract

Few prior studies have examined the validity of integrity testing in Israel, where these tests are prevalent. Among 201 Israeli students, overt integrity was found to have statistically significant correlations with: self-reported counterproductive work behaviors (-.29), prior dismissals (-.18), and a simulated theft scenario (-.20), but not with a simulated deception scenario. In addition, the integrity test scores showedno indication of adverse impact or test bias for gender, age, or national origin. Overall, this study supports the international literature on this topic, and provides evidence towards the usefulness ofintegrity testing for personnel selection in Israel.
