THE MAP COMPRISES ROLE-PLAY EXERCISES, WORK SAMPLES, STRUCTURED INTERVIEWS, AND/OR OTHER TESTS SHOWN TO BE VALID PREDICTORS OF SUCCESS IN MEDIATOR JOBS. BECAUSE MAP IDENTIFIES INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE LIKELY TO BE TALENTED MEDITORS, AND REDUCES COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH POOR MEDIATOR PERFORMANCE AND/OR HIGH MEDIATOR TURNOVER.
