Spacer Against holistic assessment: Highhouse lecture

Spacer
 

While holistic assessment has become a mainstay in executive hiring, Dr. Scott Highhouse, Ohio Eminent Scholar in psychology, asserts that there is no scientific foundation for the assumption that prediction experts can accommodate a wide range of relevant information and integrate it in sophisticated ways.

In a College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Faculty Lecture, “Blink Again: The Science behind Holistic Hiring and Admissions,” Highhouse will examine why people find the holistic school of thought so compelling, and why they resist using evidence-based practices.

The free lecture will be held from 4-5 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 4) in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater. A reception will follow.
