The article by Ployhart and Schneider provides an excellent specification and explication of a multilevel model of personnel selection hypotheses. However, questions concerning the nature of group- or organization-level tasks and KSAs, how the appropriateness of aggregating individual level data is determined, the practicality of conducting meaningful multi-level research, the practical utility of research results, and the long term reliance on individual difference paradigms represent obstacles or challenges to the development of multilevel research in personnel selection. Applications of multi-levels research in personnel selection are very much needed.
