SIOP 2012: Day 3 Live-Blog

2012 April 28

The third day had a good amount of coverage on technology-driven assessment.  Our social media symposium was in the middle of the day, so there’s a little gap there.  Wrap-up incoming soon!

7:59 AMNeoAcademic: SIOP 2012: Day 3 Live-Blog ( #siop12
8:23 AMOff to an 8:30AM session at #siop12 – really curious what attendance will look like!
8:42 AMAt Assessing video resums at #siop12
8:50 AMExtraction and narcissism predict attitudes toward video resumes, but not behavior #siop12
9:04 AMEthnic minorities perceive video resumes as being more fair #siop12
9:05 AMVideo resumes as being more fair than paper, but disappears when controlling for education (more education = paper more fair) #siop12
9:07 AMWhen applicant accent is strong in vid resumes, low prejudice reviewers rate job suitability much higher, not clear why #siop12
9:12 AMSelf promotion in vid resumes may result in lower evaluation of applicant (less credible, more manipulative and annoying) #siop12
9:18 AMMen negatively view women in vid resumes when they engage in self promotion (violating gender norms)  #siop12
9:33 AMOur #siop12 symposium on social media is coming up at 10:30 in Elizabeth H – come on by!
9:36 AM@K_Anderson_Eval all vid resume presenters seem to indicate they are at the cutting edge, not much if any published work #siop12 #siop
10:38 AMNearly 100 people at our social media symposium in Elizabeth H! #siop12
12:13 PMEnded up with over 125 attendees and a flood of questions! Running to next session on future of IO as an academic discipline #siop12
12:24 PM@budworth several touched on the idea in symposium 229 – I think you might want to contact Annemarie Hiemstra or Marie Waung #siop12
12:31 PMSome concern from panel about losing IO people to business schools, more career opps in business schools so more attractive #siop12
1:36 PMSaw fascinating poster on progress bars on web surveys – short answer: USE THEM; increases focus and enjoyment #siop12
1:47 PMAt presentation on how to create homegrown tech for accomplishing IO objectives – sounds familiar! #siop12
1:53 PMPeople of any level of tech expertise can start learning tech skills useful to IO; Excel is good entry point #siop12
2:16 PMMTurk workers useful for small practitioner jobs – pay $.25 per response for pilot study work #siop12
4:34 PMMet with collaborators and now with several thousand psychologists to listen to talk by Albert Bandura #psychology  #siop12

    Please share an overview of Bandura presentation. What a cool opportunity!

    It was really a broad survey of his research on social learning and self-efficacy, starting all the way back at the roots (Bobo doll). Usually SIOP keynoters try to apply it back to I/O, but he didn’t do that much – it was actually the most research-driven keynote I think I’ve ever heard at SIOP. Although he did tell a surprising number of jokes…

    Do you recall the other technical skills useful to learn for I/O? I agree that Excel is a good start! I’m having an intern start next month who I believe wants to go into I/O so I want to give him a good start for his application by working with him this summer!

    That presentation was actually about learning “just enough programming” to make I/O processes more efficient. They went through several examples – building an automatic survey designer and a few other things. The recommendation was actually to start with Excel formulas, move to Excel macros, and then to learn Visual Basic to run behind Access.
