Structured Interview Form Assignment Instructions


Using the template provided in DocSharing (using this form is required), create a list of ten (10) structured interview questions and submit it to your Dropbox by the end of Week 5 using the following guidelines:


  • Your original questions (e.g. written      by you) should only contain legally      allowable, job related inquiries. Act as if the organization you are      working for is obligated under Title VII and the other major, federal      employment laws when writing these questions.
  • A brief      rationale for each question must be included (e.g. why this      question is important; what type of information you are hoping to elicit      from the candidate with the question).
  • Students      are encouraged to include behavioral interview questions.
  • You should not provide a sample answer for      each question: only the question and rationale are needed.
  • Include the      position title and compose a brief      (3 to 5 sentences) description      of the job for which the questions relate.
  • Please note      that questions typically found on an application form (e.g. "Are you      at least 18 years or older," "Are you legally authorized to work      in this country,") are NOT      interview questions and should not be used.
  • Create      questions that you think would especially support identifying the KSAs of      the candidates for this position.  Think      about what the KSAs would be for the job you selected, as well as some of      the duties that come to mind.
  • Example: For a      computer repair technician questions might include “Describe for me the      process you use to troubleshoot XYZ…” (hard skill question.  “Tell me how you’ve handled a customer      that was hovering over you while working on their computer” (soft skill      question).
  • Consider both      “hard skills” questions (that focus on the more “technical” aspects of the      job) and “soft skills”      questions.  It is usually good to      have a combination of both for a well-rounded, comprehensive      interview.  And remember to keep all      questions focused on the KSAs of the position.
  • DO      NOT submit any “generic” questions (e.g. “What      are your work strengths?” “Where do you see your career in five years?”      “What can you bring to our company?”       “Why did you choose XYZ as a career?”).
  • Avoid      closed-ended questions (e.g. questions that can be answered with a yes/no      answer such as “Are you a team player?”)
  • All      questions, rationale data, and position description MUST be written by you. This assignment is not about finding      information online or at another source (even if properly cited).  Also, to avoid possible academic      integrity issues, your questions for this assignment should be created      from scratch solely by you. Use of interviewing questions previously      utilized (such as at your work) should be avoided as the exact origin of      the questions may be unknown.
  • See the next      page for the grading rubric for this assignment.




Structured Interview Form Assignment Grading Rubric


40 points


Each question with brief rationale is worth 4 points.  Students can receive 0 to 4 points for each based on the quality, as determined by the following:


  • Question is      legally permissible and job related.
  • Brief      rationale for question is included.
  • Question is      tied to the KSAs/duties of the job. Question is not generic (generic means      it could be asked in an interview for virtually any position). While      generic questions are certainly used in employment interviews they are NOT      the focus of this assignment.
  • Question is      open-ended.
  • Question is      written professionally with no spelling or grammatical errors. Question      would be easy for an applicant to comprehend (e.g. word usage is      appropriate and understandable).
  • Good mixture      of hard and soft skill questions are provided, as appropriate.



Please note the following additional criteria:


  • Points will be      deducted if less than 10 questions with rationale are provided. Example:      student only provides 8 questions with rationale. Maximum points possible      would be 32.
  • All 40 points      will be at risk if any      questions are not original (written by the student) regardless of whether      proper citation was used or not. ALL questions, rationale, and position      description MUST be written by the student.  Borrowed material is NOT permissible on      this assignment.
  • The assignment      will be returned to the student ungraded for resubmission if a brief      position description is not included on the form or if the position      description is not specific enough in its depiction of the position. This      is required so your instructor can properly assess if the questions you      have written appear to be KSA based.       Zero points will be recorded if the student elects not to resubmit      the assignment.





Please title your document with your last name, then first initial and assignment name (e.g. BrownPInterviewQsnts.docx) and note that the template in DocSharing MUST be used.
