    All known previous studies have confounded exercise- and dimension-related effects with a multitude of other assessment centre (AC) -related effects, thereby negating a meaningful interpretation of their actual relevance. In the current study (N = 698) we unconfound the full range of different effects that contribute to reliable and unreliable variance in AC ratings using a Bayesian approach to generalizability theory. When confounding is properly accounted for, our findings suggest that less than 1% of the variance in AC ratings is directly attributable to AC dimensions. Effects related to general performance and exercises account for most of the reliable variance in AC ratings.
