For example, in Hunter and Hunter's (1984) presentation of the US Employment Service validation studies, the mean validities found for the cognitive ability composite ranged from .
The main conclusion to be drawn from these US results is that the magnitude of the predictive validities estimated varies according to the type of cognitive ability test used, and that GMA or overall cognitive ability generally appears to be a better predictor of future job performance and training success than specific cognitive ability tests.
Table 3 from Robertson & Kinder presents the average single-scale validities for 12 criterion areas, using 20 validity studies.
Concerning the 90 per cent credibility values, the results show that for three criterion areas, validities are moderate in size, and for nine areas they are low (see Table 2).
The mean N-weighted validities showed considerable variations between the levels of the methodological moderators.
As no psychometric derivations are available for the effects of the moderators studied here, a simultaneous correction of the individual validities as used in the Schmidt & Hunter approach is not possible (Hunter & Schmidt, 1990).
According to this version, if the setting is held constant, some variability due to sampling error is expected from the observed validities, but the variation should be substantially smaller than the observed variance when the studies are conducted in different settings.
Barrick & Mount (1991) found estimates of true validities of similar magnitudes (after correction for unrellability and range restriction).
