About the Event

There are many effective predictors of subsequent student success in the admission process but traditional interviews can be less valid and more prone to bias. In this workshop, we will discuss methods for reducing bias in the admission process including basic steps in building better interview questions and rating scales, best practices for assessment, and file reading. Practical implementation challenges will be discussed and next steps for improving the interview and overall admissions process will be outlined.
