Abstract:In continuously administered employment tests, test security may be compromised by examinees revealing test items to future test candidates. Unlike academic testing, employee selection tests generally have longer test windows and are less likely to implement new test items or have multiple parallel forms for the sake of test security. Therefore, it is important to study whether test takers can benefit from item sharing, and whether integrity and personality inventories can explain such behaviors. Results showed that casual item sharing increased test scores relative to the control group, with small to moderate effect sizes. Conscientiousness and Emotional Stability were the best predictors, with conscientiousness more influential on numerical reasoning and Emotional Stability on verbal reasoning.
