What tests to choose?

by Peter Trebek

When it comes to choosing tests for your assessment in Hirenest, you have two options: automatic selection based on the job role or manual selection from the test library.

If you’re unsure about which tests to choose, you can simply select the job role within the platform. Hirenest will automatically recommend and select all the tests that are suitable for assessing that particular job role. This ensures that the assessment covers the necessary skills and competencies required for the position.

Alternatively, if you prefer to have more control over the test selection process, you can browse through Hirenest’s extensive test library, which consists of over 350 tests. This library offers a wide range of options, allowing you to choose tests that align with your specific assessment objectives and requirements.

A well-rounded assessment typically includes a combination of different types of tests. Here are some recommended components:

  1. Job-Specific Test: This test directly assesses the knowledge and skills relevant to the specific job role. It ensures that candidates possess the necessary expertise to perform the tasks associated with the position.
  2. Situational Judgment Test: This type of test presents candidates with realistic workplace scenarios and evaluates their ability to make effective decisions and handle various situations that may arise in the job role.
  3. Cognitive Test: Cognitive abilities, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and logical reasoning, are important for many positions. Including a cognitive test in the assessment helps assess candidates’ cognitive capabilities.
  4. Personality Test: Assessing personality traits can provide insights into a candidate’s behavior, work style, and cultural fit within the organization. Personality tests can help identify candidates who possess the desired characteristics for the job role and the company culture.

While these components are often beneficial, the specific combination of tests should be tailored to the unique requirements of the job role and the competencies you are looking to evaluate.

Lastly, it’s important to keep in mind that the recommended assessment length is up to 1 hour. By adhering to this timeframe, you ensure that the assessment remains focused, manageable for candidates, and efficient for evaluation purposes.

By leveraging Hirenest’s automatic test selection or browsing the test library, you can create a comprehensive assessment that accurately assesses candidates’ skills, judgment, cognitive abilities, and personality traits for the job role at hand.
