Skills testing provides an objective measure of a candidate’s abilities. The two characteristics of a properly validated test are that it accurately measures the skills and knowledge, ensuring that candidates are qualified for the position.
Our skills tests are developed by industry experts, and examine real-life scenarios that will be required on the job. The tests cover all roles, from entry-level, high-level and senior positions.
Reporting includes a detailed breakdown of each question showing how long the candidate spent on it, its level of difficulty, the proportion of correct answers and a comparison to global averages.
Additionally, testing can help predict performance traits such as speed and accuracy. Skill testing gives you confidence in the employees you hire. Standardised testing in conjunction with interviewing and background checks provides peace of mind that your prospective employee can perform the work you require.
If you're involved with hiring, you will know the importance of checking the abilities of your applicants. 11 Recruitment can help you with skills tests and behavioural (DISC) profiling.
