SNAP – Job Analysis Validation Software by Prophecy

Focused on bringing validated clinical competency exams to the industry in a time efficient manner, Prophecy’s Software Development Team developed SNAP Job Analysis Validation Software. Focused on refactoring only the necessary portions of previously used tools, the final product boasts a streamlined User Interface enhancing the Subject Matter Expert (SME) and facilitator user experience.

“After a thorough description and demo of the Prophecy’s SNAP software, I am very impressed with both the rigor in the job analysis process and the supporting tools and software that Prophecy has developed. To my knowledge there is no other comparable software currently out in the market place that is as comprehensive in collecting job analysis data (competencies, job tasks, KSAs) as well as creating relevant data analysis and assessments to test for job-related competencies.”  ~ Maren Dollwet, PhD Organizational Behavior

Additional benefits include:

  • Backend automation for equalized knowledge domains
  • Real-time inter-relater reliability analyses
  • Instant editing of items, job duties, and KSA statements

“Currently Prophecy’s software and methodology has been deployed in the healthcare industry but I see its relevance and application expanding far beyond that into many other industries.” ~ Maren Dollwet, PhD Organizational Behavior

Prophecy’s Validation Process

Prophecy Healthcare uses content and/or criterion based validity to ensure that our assessments limit Disparate (discriminatory) Impact against protected groups, which maintains compliance with EEOC standards. Focused on Our test plan development follows a similar methodology to that of the National Council for State Boards of Nursing’s NCLEX exam for RN licensure and other professional healthcare certification exams.

Prophecy’s assessments are created through a formal job analysis, with the assistance of subject matter experts from each professional specialty (e.g, General ICU, Med/Surg, Labor and Delivery, etc). The job analysis creates the framework for the test plan, identifying the knowledge, skills, abilities, and job duties required for a particular specialty. This detailed analysis is an absolute necessity for any organization using selection tools/procedures to assist in the hiring decisions and selection of candidates who are applying for open positions. 

As an Industrial/Organizational Psychologist, I would also highly recommend not just the software tool Prophecy has created to assist in a full end-to-end job analysis, but also their facilitated process in engaging subject matter experts in well-designed 3-day workshops as well as their rigorous validation process to ensure job-relevant and thoroughly validated assessments.”  ~ Maren Dollwet, PhD Organizational Behavior

Without the use of, and possession of supporting documentation for such job analyses, organizations are at risk for potential discriminatory hiring practices, as evidenced in federal court cases, such as Lewis v. City of Chicago 528 F.3d 488, 103 Fair Empl.Prac.Cas. (BNA) 705, 91 Empl. Prac. Dec. P43,214, and Ricci v. Destefano, No. 07-1428 (U.S. 6/29/2009) (2009); Executive Order 11246).
