Despite widespread support for the idea of measuring EI as an ability based on Mayer and Salovey’s model, only a few performance-based EI tests have been developed. In addition, the state-of-the-art measure (MSCEIT) has psychometric limitations that are, among other factors, related to the use of consensus scoring. Here, three recently developed tests to assess different ability EI components will be presented that aim to overcome these limitations. The Geneva Emotion Recognition Test (GERT) measures the emotion perception branch using videos of emotional expressions; the Geneva Emotion Knowledge Test (GEMOK) measures the emotion understanding branch; and the Geneva Emotional Competence Test (GECO) measures the emotion management branch. In all tests, items were developed and are scored based on theoretical predictions rather than group consensus. Results of several validation studies will be presented to illustrate the utility of these new tests.
