Eysenck (1967) suggested in his seminal paper that simple reaction time was not related to mental ability test differences, and that it was the slope parameter within the Hick task, related to the subject's `rate of gain of information', that was the causal ingredient of the correlation.
Because mental ability test scores do contain some error, and because other personal traits do affect job performance (net of the effect of mental ability), you should add to the test score any other reliable information that provides incremental predictive power.
Schmidt and Hunter (1998) have recently scoured the literature to find out what would be the next best piece of information to add to the mental ability test. They examined research on 18 other factors, including such varied items as integrity tests, graphology, reference checks, biographical data, and interviews.
The 100-year gaps since the discovery of g (the supposedly neutral signifier for the abstract concept of general mental ability; Spearman, 1904) and the devising of the first serviceable mental ability tests (Binet, 1905) are still a few years away from closing.
Their meta-analysis concluded that the predictive validity coefficient of general mental ability tests in job selection was just over .5 (compared with .02 for graphology).
On a separate occasion, 97 of the 101 subjects completed a further mental ability test to provide concurrent validity for the 1998 scores on the Moray House Test.
Many general mental ability tests are reasonably inexpensive, easy to administer, and have good validity.
A small battery of g loaded mental ability tests were administered to 274 children from 106 Bedouin families (mean age = 15.0 years, range of age = 7.9 - 18.9 years) attending grade schools in the southern region of Israel.
As part of an exploratory study preliminary to a planned research program to gather a wide array of kinship correlations for IQ in a non-western setting (a Bedouin population), we gathered full-sibling and half-sibling data on three g loaded mental ability tests previously shown to be strongly influenced by familial (including genetic) factors.
