Research Face Validity of Competency Models for state Benchmarks
Measurements in Psychology and Education
In recent years, the number of Russian companies developing competence models for the purposes of staff assessment has been growing. Existing approaches to the assessment of the validity of competency models are mainly focused on the criterial validity. To obtain quantitative assessments of the quality of competency models and criterial validity in particular, it is first necessary to assess the competencies based on this model. The resulting estimates always contain distortions associated with the valuation tool used, so in the valuation evaluation results, part of the variance is related not only to the quality of the model. The paper considers the study of the apparent validity of competence models, which allows directly measuring the quality of the competency model. This study is unique, as it was conducted for the first time in our country. The novelty of the research is to develop norms and create a methodology for establishing benchmarks for indicators of apparent validity, which allows companies to evaluate the applied competency model and compare its quality with other companies in the market. The sample of the study was 11000 employees from 31 companies. The study is of practical importance for Russian companies, as it allows them to compare their models of competencies, opens up new opportunities for them in the market and promotes the development of domestic business as a whole.
