Job requirements matrix
The following job requirements matrix seeks to explore the applicability of various methods of selection according to the particular Human Resources job, and most importantly, according to various knowledge skills and abilities (KSA) as the job specifies. These essential functions and their associated KSAs are explained below in detail, exploring the various method chosen as well, according to a discussion of the reliability, validity as well as the cost of every method. An exploration of ways through which the hiring decision will be made is also explored below.
Appropriate selection tests
Selection tests are any instruments used to make appropriate decisions with regard to a potential employee.

The reliability of a test should be questioned if the test does not come up with consistent results every time the test is used.

For a test to be valid, it is important that the skills tested are relevant to the skills required in the job position open. This is a very important consideration as it ensures that candidates that score highly are considered first for the job, as this would mean that these same candidates have higher abilities in performing the job. In consideration of these factors, the following selection tests are examined…
