VALIDITY

WHAT MAKES THE BIRKMAN METHOD VALID AND EFFECTIVE

Since 1951, millions of users across generations, geography, gender, and cultures have leveraged data from The Birkman Method. Birkman’s focus on reliability and validity is driven by experts in psychology, data science, statistics, and research to ensure the ongoing usability of their data in a changing marketplace.


Birkman understands the impact their behavioral assessments have on people. They take the reliability and validity of their assessments seriously and have done so since the founding of our company over 69 years ago.


The reliability and validity of an employment assessment are critically important. Reliability and validity are the statistical criteria used to assess whether an assessment is a good measure. Below are select findings from Birkman criterion-related validity:

 

  • Self-awareness improves 1

  • Vocational interests stable from adolescence 2

  • Group differences 3

  • Likelihood of staying at job (predicts turnover) 4

  • Work performance 4
