Central Test will be present at the International Test Commission’s 10th Conference in Vancouver Canada, from the 1st to the 4th of July, 2016.

The ITC is an association of national psychological associations, test commissions, publishers and other organizations. The biennial ITC Conferences bring together people from around the world to discuss and debate topics of common interest and concern. The theme of the 2016 conference is “Improving policy and practice: Opportunities and challenges in an international context”.

In view of this theme, Central Test will be displaying their latest research on Counterproductive Work Behaviour – CWB with a poster presentation.

Nigel Evans- C.Psychol will be presenting on behalf of Central Test a poster entitled a “Review of ETIX: An assessment designed to measure the likelihood of Counterproductive Work Behaviour (CWB) in an international context”. Nigel is the British Representative of the ITC and was commissioned in the design of ETIX.

The poster outlines the development of an assessment aimed at measuring individuals’ likelihood of engaging in CWB. The design draws upon research suggesting that attitudes and subjective norms are strong predictors of intentions of engaging in CWB. As such, the assessment is designed to measure people’s attitudes and dispositions towards instances of CWBs to predict their likelihood of engaging in CWB. The paper will demonstrate the test’s efficiency in predicting CWB as well as its international application.

With this poster presentation, Central Test hopes to draw attention to CWB as a pervasive and global problem that causes large amounts of damages to companies worldwide. It also hopes to initiate a discussion about the importance of providing tools for companies to predict and prevent instances of CWB in order to create a more ethical and productive workplace.

Come see our poster presentation on Monday 4th of July, between 11:00 and 12:30 at the Pinnacle Hotel in Vancouver, Canada.
