Abstract:Self-reported measures are the predominant method to assess job applicants’ orderliness in the selection process. However, the validity of the measures has been questioned due to response bias and self-knowledge constraints. An alternative is stealth assessment, a type of embedded assessment in a game that evaluates the players’ latent competencies. Combined with VR, a virtual stealth assessment can enhance ecological validity and provide substantial behavioural data. Apart from orderliness, environmental factors can also influence orderly behaviours. For individuals with different orderliness levels, their orderly behaviours can vary depending on the orderliness level of the environment they are in. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the correlation between orderly performance in a virtual stealth assessment and self-reported orderliness and examine how environmental orderliness affects this relationship. To achieve this, 50 participants completed a survey on their perceived level of orderliness and underwent an assessment in a tidy and messy virtual environment. The findings indicated that the current assessment is correlated to an existing measure, and highly orderly people are more likely to behave according to their personality in a tidy virtual environment than a messy one. This study established the foundation for future developments of virtual stealth assessments.
