Our studies focus on the role of first impressions in rater-based assessments. First impressions are formed in the first few seconds after meeting someone new. The same applies to raters who assess the competence and skills of trainees. How fast are these first impressions formed? How do they influence raters’ final judgments? These are some of the core questions for our research.
As I just started working at iMERR, there is not much to be proud of yet. Hopefully the results of the ongoing studies will be reason enough to re-write this section soon!
During my master study in work and organizational psychology at the Erasmus University, selection and assessment was one of the main topics. The opportunity to do research in this field and thus helping to expand the existing knowledge was really exciting and I look forward to contributing my part.
