IO Psych Intern Involved in Promotions Process “Compromise” in N.C.

For about twenty years, North Carolina State University’s Industrial and Organizational Psychology Program has been helping the North Carolina Highway Patrol develop and administer promotions tests.

This year, however, something went wrong. Really wrong. What was it? We don’t know.

N.C. State University is denying the release of its report into what went wrong with a promotions test for troopers, in part by citing a federal privacy law protecting student education records.

We do know that the NC State IO psych graduate intern was removed from her position on June 25th, 2019, for “compromising the organization’s promotions process.” And, if NCSU gets its way, that might be all we ever know.
