Assessor-Assessee gender bias in assessment center ratings
Skill dimension ratings on an assessment center simulation exercise were analyzed for evidence of assessor-assessee gender bias effects. Twenty-four (12 male and 12 female) assessors rated behavioral observations believed to be of male, female or "no-gender" participants. A 2X3 mixed ANOVA (gender of assessee x gender of assessor) revealed no significant main effects. There was no significant variance in the total ratings given by male and female assessors to male, female, or "no-gender" participants, nor a significant interaction effect. Neither males or females rated female participants higher than they rated male participants on identical behaviors. This supports the claim of assessment centers to be free of gender bias in the ratings, and disproves the hypothesis that there is a trend for males to rate females higher.
