Slope bias
A type of test bias; occurs when there is differential validity (validity coefficients for a predictor differ for different groups). The predictor is more accurate for one group than another.
Intercept bias
(or unfairness); when the validity coefficient and criterion performance for different groups are the same, but their mean scores on the predictor differ. Therefore, the predictor consistently over or under-predicts performance on the criterion for measures of one of the groups.
Taylor-Russel tables
used to estimate the percent of new hires who will be successful as employees given various combinations of validity coefficients, selection rations and base rates (best when the selection ratio is low and the base rate is moderate)
Allowable reasons for adverse impact
Business Necessity (prove the measure is job related and requred for the safe and efficient operation of the business)
