The PIA test is randomised and in Likert format. Following an introductory instruction, individual statements (items) are specified, which must be evaluated on a 7-level scale with regard to agreement/disagreement. All items of the item pool are output in random order. PIA is always used in conjunction with other personality scales in order to reduce fatigue and transparency and thus socially desired response behaviour. Here, the items from the various tests are combined in one test module randomly.
The Integrity Assessment Personality Inventory (PIA) was the first successfully validated integrity test in the German-speaking region in 2003.
The objective of the test development was to map the nine dimensions of integrity described by Marcus (2000) as precisely and comprehensively as possible. PIA combines trait- and attitude-oriented integrity test elements. For the development of the PIA various established procedures were used, of which there is conceptual overlap with the integrity construct according to the breadth of personality traits and attitude structures to be assessed and which also have professional relevance. In order to adequately map the property-oriented components of integrity design, particular reference was made to the characteristics enshrined in the five-factor model of personality (Costa & McCrae, 1989, Norman, 1963), taking into account the meta-analytical findings of Marcus, Funke and Schuler (1997).
The items of the PIA test have been formulated as far as possible on a professional basis in order to maximise acceptance of the procedure and its forecasting power. Context-neutral formulations were used where this did not seem sensible.
