Although it has been stressed that web-based data-collection methods have several advantages over other collection methods, such as low cost, short response delay and high selectivity (Weible & Wallace 1998; Forrest 1999; McNeisch 2000), there is still considerable discussion among researchers on an important issue: what is the predictive validity
of web-based surveys?
An even stronger test of the predictive validity
of behavior/reinforcement theory (and other theories) would be to account for variance in the target problem while simultaneously including alternate explanations for the target problem.
This situation has led to a dilemma in the USA, in which relying on cognitive ability tests has been seen by many organisations and researchers as sensible from the perspective of maximizing predictive validity
, but doing so threatens the achievement of social objectives, such as overcoming past social inequities, pluralism, and creating an ethnically diverse workforce (Sackett & Wilk, 1994; Sackett et al.
