Professor Schmitt's recent research has been in personnel and selection and academic admissions. He has been developing procedures to assess college students ability and motivation in noncognitive domains that might predict their success in college. In these and other selection-related projects he is interested in the construct and predictive validity of our measures and the impact they have on the people who take the measures as well as the institutions that may use them in their decision making.
