Dr. Kriska retired from his personnel psychologist position with the City of Columbus in March of 2003. During his tenure with the City, he was involved in employment test construction for all City jobs, including the police and fire divisions. The safety forces provided many challenges for developing and validating entry-level and promotional exams and the high stakes resulted in close scrutiny. The scrutiny of the tests was good, however, because it forced him to be thorough. Is research interests include not only testing, but also stereotype threat, statistical literacy, and quality management (an industrial-organizational topic).
Since his retirement from the City, he has been teaching for Walden. He has taught Statistics I, Statistics II, Personnel Psychology in the Work Place, and Research Design,Dr. Kriska taught introductory statistics for many years as adjunct faculty at The Ohio State University.
