Sample text

An interview can be used to explore job-relevant issues in depth by posing both basic and follow-up questions. Also, the interview can be a good tool for determining a match between a candidate and the organization. However, generally, any inquiries that were illegal in the employment application process are also illegal in the interview. Even casual chat about the candidate’s family can be construed as an impermissible line of inquiry. Thus, interviewers need to make sure that all questions focus on job-related responsibilities.

Interviewers may be influenced by the strength of a previous response to a question when assessing a subsequent question. Using a rating strategy reduces the halo effect by focusing the interviewer on each question (Kiker & Motowidlo, 1998). Interviewer Training. When interviewers receive training on how to collect job-related information during an interview, they are more effective (Stevens, 1998). Note Taking. When interviewers voluntarily take notes, their recall of interview-related information is better than if they cannot take notes (Burnett, Fan, Motowidlo, & DeGroot, 1998; Macan & Dipboye, 1994; Middendorf & Macan, 2002).

Instructional strategies are a means to reaching the intended learning outcomes. Effective teachers recognize that some strategies work better than others in particular situations or with certain students, so they use a variety of strategies (Darling-Hammond, 2001; Educational Review Office, 1998). • Cooperative learning is an instructional strategy commonly used to involve students and enhance higher-order thinking skills (Shellard & Protheroe, 2000). • Hands-on learning results in students achieving at higher levels than peers taught without manipulatives or simulations (Wenglinsky, 2000).
