Assessing HRM-Specific Knowledge

Due to a renewed emphasis on outcomes, business professors are expected to be more actively engaged in the assessment of knowledge and skills. The purpose of this paper is to assist in this endeavor by providing an e-mail in-basket exercise for the assessment of human resource management-specific knowledge. The study indicates that students in an upper-level undergraduate human resource management course significantly outperformed students in the introductory human resource management course. Other human resource management professors are free to adapt this exercise in order to assess the acquired knowledge of the students in their undergraduate human resource management programs.
