The Tech-Talk Balance: What Technical Interviewers Expect from Technical Candidates

Denae Ford, Titus Barik, Leslie Rand-Pickett, Chris Parnin
2017 2017 IEEE/ACM 10th International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering (CHASE)  
Although candidates are able to answer technical questions, there is a mismatch of what candidates think interviewers assess versus what criteria is used in practice.  ...  To determine what criteria interviewers value, we conducted mock technical interviews with software engineer candidates at a university and collected evaluations from interviewers.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank the Alt-Code research group for their support. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. DGE-1252376.  ...

Why do Situational Interviews Predict Job Performance? The Role of Interviewees' Ability to Identify Criteria

Pia V. Ingold, Martin Kleinmann, Cornelius J. König, Klaus G. Melchers, Chad H. Van Iddekinge
2014 Journal of business and psychology  
This approach enabled us to conduct the situational interviews under standardized conditions, to assess interviewees' Ability to Identify Criteria, and at the same time, to collect job performance data  ...  We examined an explanation based upon the importance of interviewees' Ability to Identify Criteria (i.e., to read the targeted interview dimensions) for situational interview performance.  ...  For each question, both interviewers rated interviewees' answers on a 5-point scale and we then averaged their ratings for each question.  ...

Argumentation Models for Usability Problem Analysis in Individual and Collaborative Settings

Ebba Thora Hvannberg, Effie L.-C. Law, Gyda Halldorsdottir
2018 International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction  
Novice usability evaluators could identify predefined criteria for a usability problem when probed and this could be acknowledged as a backing to warrants.  ...  The data were analysed by using conventional content analysis and by creating argumentation models according to the Toulmin model.  ...  In this study, the analytical process entailed breaking down the text from participants' answers in the semi-structured interviews into raw data (quotes) and then coding the raw data.  ...
