Protocol: Comparing advantages and disadvantages of Rating Scales, Behavior Observation Scales and Paired Comparison Scales for behavior assessment of competencies in workers. A systematic literature review

Juan A. Marin-Garcia, Lucia Ramirez Bayarri, Lorena Atares-Huerta

Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: Identify the characteristics of each of the types of scale and how they differ from each other. Estimate the extent to which they are used by organizations in the assessment of skills of their employees. Summarize the advantages and disadvantages of each. Propose which of them would be more appropriate for assessing the competence of innovation in people (performance evaluation, promotion of workers, recruitment, etc.) and the mode of administration (self, peer, expert assessment).
