Summary To broaden our understanding of the person-based phenomena that impact organizationalbehavior, researchers are increasingly making use of implicit measures. Explicit measures tapaffect, attitudes, and self-concepts that are accessible to introspective awareness, which aresometimes unreliable or distorted by response biases. In contrast, implicit measures assessmental content and processes that operate outside awareness. Unfortunately, the ad hocmanner in which implicit measures are sometimes developed is problematic. As a way ofimproving research on implicit content and processes, we present a detailed and practicalframework for developing one type of implicit measure: word fragment completion tasks.Such tasks have been successfully used to measure a variety of individual difference variablesin previous organizational research. Our framework draws on previous research and wellunderstood psychometric principles to describe a process for creating reliable and valid wordfragment completion tasks.
